Darya has discovered the perfect gift for her daughter’s twenty-fifth birthday: an ideal husband. Mina, however, is fed up with her mother’s endless matchmaking and grading of available Iranian American bachelors.

After Darya’s last ill-fated attempt to find Mina a husband, mother and daughter embark on a journey to Iran, where the two women gradually begin to understand each other. But after Mina falls for a young man who never appeared on her mother’s spreadsheets and Darya is tempted by an American musician, will this mother and daughter’s tender appreciation for each other survive?
