Summary
Massoud Amir Behrani, an Iranian immigrant living the United States works several menial jobs in order to provide his family, even though he was a high-ranking official in Iran. He buys a California bungalow, thinking he can fix it up, sell it again. However, the house is the legal property of former drug addict Kathy who lost the house in an unfair legal dispute with the county, she is left with nowhere to go. Neither Kathy nor Behrani have broken the law, so they find themselves involved in a difficult moral dilemma
