Atieh's singular passion is food, and her small but popular restaurant on the sleepy Caspian coast (that she runs with three other women) is her pride and joy. But when her former fiancé Aziz appears after a twenty-year absence, the women believe he has intentions of closing the restaurant. So Atieh prepares his favorite dishes, one after the other, in a desperate effort to convince him otherwise. Loosely based on the Persian fable of Sheherazade and the Thousand Myths (A Thousand and One Nights), writer and director Ali Raffi uses the language of food to paint a richly textured portrait of life and love on the northern coast of Iran. THE FISH FALL IN LOVE (MAHIHA ASHEGH MISHAVAND) is presented in Farsi with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
