For Shirin, being part of a perfect Persian family isn't easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn't know she's bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine, can't understand why she doesn't tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her moviemaking class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother's betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.

Did You Know?
Can't hold my thoughts still long enough to think them, I have to chase them.
I know what you mean. The other day, I had a really good idea for a children's book while I was smoking weed and now I have no idea what it was.
Keep smoking. You'll get it back.
