Following a four year separation, Ahmad returns to Paris from Tehran, upon his French wife Marie's request, in order to finalize their divorce procedure. During his brief stay, Ahmad discovers the conflicting nature of Marie's relationship with her daughter Lucie. Ahmad’s efforts to improve this relationship soon unveil a secret from their past.

"There's no doubt that Farhadi is one of today's greatest filmmakers when it comes to the complexities of relationships, and the way he handles the characters and actors that embody them is second to none."
