When a large Iranian-American family gathers, a family secret is uncovered that catapults the estranged mother and daughter into an exploration of the past, and to discover they are more alike than they know. With endearing childhood vignettes, affecting flashbacks to rural Iran, and hilariously uncomfortable moments of confrontation, The Persian Version encapsulates the spectrum of family, and the independence from it, with bonafide sincerity and an excellent balance between humour and heart.
