Teheran, 70er Jahre: Ein junges Mädchen träumt von der freien Welt. Kaum ist sie aus dem turbulenten Iran in Europa angekommen, verwandelt sich das neugierige Kind im Schnelldurchlauf in eine Frau... Chaya ist das Porträt einer unkonventionellen, starken Frau mit nicht zu zügelndem Freiheitsdrang. Ein so warmherziges wie hinreißendes Debüt.
