Fiery Mojdeh is convinced her husband is cheating on her with the divorcée next door. When the dueling couple — and their gossipy neighbors — keep turning to Rouhi, the couple’s maid, for affirmations and information, she’s sharp enough to tell each what she thinks they should hear. This enthralling drama is as fresh and modern as its Iran, where girls wear chadors while riding motorcycles, and where despite love, tears and talk, at the core, everyone is a stranger, and every relationship a time bomb.
