In light of cultural and familial obligations, to what lengths will someone go for the person they love? The characters in Apricot Groves wrestle with their identities against an inhospitable backdrop of religious and societal oppression.

Aram is an Iranian-Armenian youth who immigrated to the United States as a young child. After falling in love with an Armenian girl, they make their first visit back to meet her family and ask for her hand in marriage. This rite of passage allows Aram to discover a culture that, while in their blood, feels completely foreign. When secrets are eventually revealed, we discover the lengths to which Aram is willing to go for the woman they love.

With a striking, openhearted perspective, Apricot Groves is a beautiful film that proves that, when it comes to love, there are no borders.
