Ghassem is an Iranian struggling to provide for his family in his homeland. He yearns to leave Iran, but emigration involves so much red tape that doing so is nearly impossible. In desperation, Ghassem gathers his pregnant wife (Leila Hatami) and his boisterous extended family onto a plane with the promise of work abroad. Once aboard, he enacts his actual plot -- with the help of his wife -- to hijack the flight and fly his family to a better life.
