    When American basketball player Kevin Sheppard, a flashy point-guard from the U.S. Virgin Islands, accepts a job to play in one of the world's most feared countries – Iran - he expects the worst.

With a charismatic personality that charms everyone he meets, Kevin forms an unlikely friendship with three outspoken Iranian women who share with him their strong opinions on everything, from politics to religion to gender roles.
