Full Plot

Destiny weaves a web of tangled souls in a love triangle: Shahrzad, a stunning music student, her husband Sean, a successful stand-up comedian, and Sebastian, a poetic and dashing Spanish American gardener. Caught in the middle is Shahrzad's piano teacher, Elana, a former screen femme fatale, who is having her own furtive affair with Sebastian. Soon Sebastian falls in love with Shahrzad. Shahrzad discovers her "arranged" marriage with Sean is doomed. Unexpectedly, a friendship flourishes between Shahrzad (Muslim) and her piano teacher Elana (Jewish), nourished by their passion for classical music, especially Tchaikovsky's. It grows stronger when they learn of each other's secret tragedies: When a teenager in Iran, one of Shahrzad's breast was horrifically scarred in a religiously charged attack, while Elana battles with breast cancer. Shahrzad becomes the object of desire and intrigue for three men: Sebastian, Sean, and young Ray, her mysterious brother-in-law. Simultaneously, Shahrzad becomes the focus of attention of two women, Elana and Parisa, her mother-in-law. Infusing the young lovers' secret romance are Rumi's ecstatic poems and Lorca's mysterious poetry that drive Sebastian in hot pursuit of Shahrzad, inflaming a passionate love that threatens to destroy everything.
