Story revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor and a sociology student who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss – one of the professor’s former students – the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, talking, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald records. Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend, but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface.
