Reza and Leila, an attractive and affluent young couple deeply in love and
recently married, discover that Leila is unable to conceive. Invoking tradition, Reza's
mother convinces her daughter-in-law that Reza must, out of necessity, take a second wife
to produce an heir. This provocative and eloquent story, from "Iran's longest running
cinematic master" (Village Voice), is a stunning portrayal of the clash between
tradition and modern marriage; between manipulation and the power of love.
