Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: It is the early 1950s in a restless Iran. One night, a humble driver in the Iranian army is walking home through a neighbourhood in Tehran when he hears a small, pitiful cry. To his horror comes upon a newborn baby girl. He snatches up the child, and forever alters his own destiny and that of the little girl, whom he names Aria. Through Aria, we meet three very different women who are fated to mother the lost child. Residence: Vancouver, B.C.
