Original title Gharizeh
International title Atieh


A safe haven that awakens passions may have unforeseen consequences.


On the heels of an unexpected trauma, Forough and her 16-year-old daughter, Atieh, go to seek sanctuary with Rassoul, an old friend of Atieh’s dead father.
In the full throes of adolescent puberty and yearning for love, Kamran, Rassoul’s 14-year-old son, is instinctively drawn to Atieh. Little does he know that his father has hatched a plan that will shatter their lives.
