Roya is a dreamy, idealistic teenager living in 1953 Tehran who, amidst the political upheaval of the time, finds a literary oasis in Mr. Fakhri’s stationary shop. When Mr. Fakhri introduces Roya to Bahman, she loses her heart at once. Meeting at the town square on the eve of their marriage, violence erupts that changes their country’s future, and Bahman never shows. Sixty years later, fate leads Roya back to Bahman and offers her a chance to ask him the questions that have haunted her for more than half a century: Why did he leave? Where did he go? How was he able to forget her? The Stationery Shop is an exploration of loss, family bonds, and the power of love.
