Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: Iran, 1979; the Iranian Revolution is just around the corner. In the northeastern city of Naishapur, a retired judge and his wife, Bibi-Khanoom, continue to run their ancient family orchard, growing apples, plums, peaches, and sour cherries. Bibi-Khanoom’s grandniece secretly falls in love with the judge's grandnephew and dreams of a career on the stage. His other grandnephew withers away on opium dreams. A widowed father longs for a life in Europe. A strained marriage slowly unravels. As the streets in the capital grow violent, a solar eclipse, set to occur on one of the holiest days of year, finally causes the family-- and the country-- to break. -- adapted from jacket
