Rosie Ming is a young Canadian poet who lives at home with her over-protective Chinese immigrant grandparents and has never been anywhere by herself. The daughter of a Chinese mother and an Iranian father, she is invited to perform at a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, but would rather go to the bright lights of Paris.
