The Septembers of Shiraz follows a family for a year in the life of an Iranian family in post-Shah Iran during the 1980s.
In the aftermath of the Iranian revolution, rare-gem dealer Isaac Amin is arrested and wrongly accused of being a spy. Terrified by his disappearance, his family must reconcile a new world of cruelty and chaos with the collapse of everything they have known. As Isaac navigates the terrors of prison, and his wife feverishly searches for him, his children struggle with the realization that their family may soon be forced to embark on a journey of incalculable danger.
