Tehran: City of Love

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

An ex bodybuilding champion now personal trainer finds secret excitement in his life when he agrees to train a young man for championships; an overweight beauty clinic secretary who lacks confidence in her physical appearance uses her sexy voice to create a persona for seducing men she feels she could never have; and a dispirited religious singer tries his luck at becoming a wedding singer to increase the chances of finding the love of his life. This is the bittersweet tale of three middle-aged disenchanted characters yearning for love and connection in a city that does not embrace them.
