Kayısı Bahçeleri

Older brother Vartan waits anxiously at the airport for his younger trans brother, Aram, who is arriving from the United States where he has lived all his life. Aram has come to Armenia to propose marriage to an Armenian girl he met in America. The handsome Armenian-Iranian brothers must shoulder all the details for the traditional ritual themselves, since their father is dead. The girl’s father is unenthusiastic, even suspicious, as he grips Aram’s hand in a testing handshake, one of many moments of awkward tension at the marriage proposal meeting.
