Synopsis


A journey into modern Iranian life.


Ava is a 20-something Londoner.


Following the death of her father, she journeys to Iran in search of his past and her culture.


Exploring this often misunderstood country, Ava is swept into a world of raves, raids and illicit love, all whilst negotiating family politics, Tehran traffic and the morality police.


Nadia Fall (Home, Three Sisters) returns to the National Theatre with a tender and witty snapshot of modern Iran based on real-life interviews.
