This ancient Persian legend depicts an epic story of a love triangle between Queen Mekhmene, her young sister, Shireen and the handsome young Ferkhad. When Shireen suffers from grave illness, it is the queen who must sacrifice her beauty to save her dying sister. While Shireen’s health blooms, the queen plunges into gloom and despair, as her beauty fades leaving her in a sense of turmoil. The sisters are further challenged when they both fall in love with the same man, Ferkhad, who must choose which one of the sisters he’s ready to give his heart to or follow his duty.
