Raised amidst the confines of Iranian society, young Tamila Soroush escapes the oppression of Iran for the freedom of America, enjoying her everyday acts of rebellion against her background and capturing her new life through the lens of her camera, all the while searching for a husband who can prevent her return home. Original.
A twenty-something Iranian woman named Tamila Soroush has almost surrendered to the thought of a life as a humble Islamic bride when her parents surprise her with a one-way ticket to America and a three-month travel visa. But this is not a sightseeing venture--they firmly tell Tamilia to find an Iranian-American man to marry so she can remain in the States. With ninety days to find a husband, Tamilia dives into the abundance of America by learning to square dance, shopping at Victoria's Secret, and snapping photos of all the freedoms which are forbidden in Iran. However, her hunt for a husband takes an unexpected turn when she falls for a hunk who happens to be a full-blooded American. Should she go against the wishes of her parents, who risked everything to give her a chance at a better life, or ignore the yearnings of her heart and settle for a second-rate spouse?
