Synopsis

An Iranian woman and a Swiss man rent a room in the same Airbnb. She doesn’t want to get to know him, puts on a headscarf and thus uses the Western prejudices in her favour.

That wasn’t really necessary, because he doesn’t want to get to know her either…

The film humorously plays with the prejudices, misunderstandings and life crises of the protagonists. Despite the cultural differences, what connects people is stronger than what separates them.
