Synopsis

A young couple, Amir and Sara, are about to move to Melbourne to begin a new life as foreign exchange students. The day of their departure has finally arrived, but they are suddenly faced with a constant stream of friends and relatives, slowing their preparations down to a snail’s pace. Just as they are hurrying to finish off a few last-minute chores like returning their apartment to the owner and talking to a friend in Australia on Skype about what to do after they arrive there, something unexpected happens. Both Amir and Sara are stunned by the event, and rush to deal with it as best they can. Will they really make it to Melbourne or does some entirely different future await them?
