Storyline

The graphic account of a poverty-stricken family living in Tehran through the days before the youngest daughter of the family, Somaieh, is departing to start her marriage to a supposedly rich Afghan. While all members of the family have their worries about the wholeness of the marriage, she is struggling with her madly debilitating troubles including a silly mother who is gravely ill, a drug abusing brother, an obsessively compulsive sister, a considerably smart teenage brother who is being ruined in the environment, and a cunning oldest brother in need of money.

completely engrossing & captivating

'We all die one day, don't worry, no one has ever been left alive". Life + 1 day is about dysfunctional, shattered family who are overwhelmed by fear as the youngest daughter of the family is getting married. The characters come to life through the dialogue, confrontations, and realistic situations. The acting was very raw and impressive. This heart-wrenching drama is a must see.
