Shilan is a young, unhappy, married Kurdish-Iraqi woman and mother from Iraqi Kurdistan. She is determined to help her younger sister pass the entrance exam for university in order to spare her from an arranged marriage. In exchange for a large sum of money, Rojin is supposed to be given the correct answers during the exams. The two sisters get entangled in an adventurous labyrinth of corrupt machinations that connect all parts of society and are exposed by Shawkat Amin Korki with quiet irony and loud criticism.
