Synopsis

A portrait of American pro basketball player Kevin Sheppard, who signed on to play for the upstart Iranian Super League team A.S. Shiraz as one of two non-Iranian players. In Iran, Sheppard appears to make friends wherever he goes and he ends up becoming friendly with three strong, independent Iranian women who bristle at the restrictions of an oppressive theocracy. As we follow Sheppard's journey, we come to better understand the radical fissures that plague Iranian society.
