Rouhi, a betrothed woman who works for a local housekeeping agency, accepts an assignment to clean the home of an affluent married couple about to leave on vacation. She becomes quickly sucked into a virulent nuptial conflict of deceit, treachery, and vitriol that challenges all of her presuppositions about the nature of married life. By cloaking the events of the household (and their participants) in ambiguity, and constantly shifting the central perspective of the film from one character to another, Farhadi adds depth and complexity to the work and continually challenges the audience, forcing each viewer to rewrite their presuppositions about the characters.
