Once Upon a time in Persia, there was a girl who saw her reflection in a mirror for the first time on her wedding day. Not recognising herself and believing there to be another woman, she ran away. When her love follows and attempts to persuade her of her mirror reflection, she takes him on a journey of what form her spirit actually possesses and all the true reflections she sees of herself within nature
