From his perch at an upscale Copenhagen wine bar, the impeccably dressed Iranian-born Esmail scours the room, looking for a vulnerable Danish female to ply with his charms—he desperately needs a live-in relationship to enhance his otherwise weak immigration application. This intense psychological drama explores what prompts someone to leave their homeland to start a new life at the other end of the world. ~ Chicago Film Festival
