Roya and her husband Babak are all set to emigrate from Iran to Denmark, but Roya changes their plan when she meets a quiet young girl, Ziba. Ziba seems lost and doesn’t remember anything. Unaware that this girl has come to replace her, Roya welcomes her in her home and introduces her to her husband, family, and friends.
