German Cinema release: October 4, 2018.
Mina’s family has introduced her to several potential husbands in Iran. She has rejected them all until she meets Kian, a surgeon who has travelled from Germany in search of a wife. It’s not love at first sight, but the seduction of life in Europe that makes her consent. In his mid-thirties Kian, a successful Iranian Immigrant, is desperate for a wife to make his life appear complete. He eagerly takes his new bride back home, but marriage to a virtual stranger is more difficult than either imagined.
- A Dysfunctional Cat is a love story in reverse. Two virtual strangers thrown together into a marriage must overcome many differences and obstacles in hopes of finding love.
