The only daughter in a large Iranian-American family, Leila (Layla Mohammadi) is estranged from her mother when her unplanned pregnancy following a one-night stand sparks confusion, questioning and, ultimately, familial love. Inspired by true events, this critically acclaimed recent release from writer/director Maryam Keshavarz is full of uproarious humour and heart.

‘It’s funny, but it’s also raw…It will also leave you wanting to call your mother’ – Collider
