Depois de ter sido falsamente acusado de roubar o seu ex-chefe, um gângster iraniano com problemas cardíacos deve recuperar os medicamentos roubados. O filme mergulha no submundo persa e russo de uma subterrânea e estranha Los Angeles, onde a obscenidade reina suprema.
Haunted by memories as a child soldier in 1980s Iran, Behrouz finds himself in bustling, neon-soaked Los Angeles, working to become a real estate agent and live a simple life with his girlfriend Oksana. But Behrouz’s attempts at a normal life become increasingly difficult as his opium addiction and gambling habit rear their ugly heads, and he struggles to leave behind his past with the Iranian mafia. Soon Behrouz and Oksana find themselves caught between the feuding heads of the Iranian and Russian mobs.
