A Day in Eden

Yuri, a permanent resident at Eden Nursing Home is rebelling against the humiliating treatment by the nurses. His last bit of dignity seems lost, when he meets Fereshde, a Muslim volunteer, who finds him in an embarrassing situation. Fereshde, herself is rebelling against the conservative constraints put on her by her family. She wants to do the right humane thing, what Yuri needs however, conflicts with her duties as a Muslim.
