It’s 1978 and protests are breaking out all across Iran, encroaching on this suburb where a tight-knit circle of girlfriends plans weddings, trades dirty jokes, and tries to hang onto a sense of normalcy. But as the revolution escalates, each woman is forced to join the wave of emigration or face an equally uncertain future at home. With breathtaking humanity and cutting wit, Wish You Were Here
chronicles a decade of life during war, as best friends forever become friends long lost, scattered and searching for home.
Nazanin and her friends are on the brink of adulthood. As they prepare for a wedding, outside their living room the Iranian revolution simmers and threatens to alter the course of their lives.
