When Will seeks out Alina’s insight for his paper on Iran, he has no idea that he will meet the love of his life. But when Alina’s visa renewal gets denied early in their relationship, the couple is suddenly faced with life-altering decisions. tenderly is the love story of an Iranian visual artist on an expiring student visa and an American writer grappling with the imminent loss of his father. An examination of how immigration complications can alter the course of families and relationships, tenderly asks the question: how far would you go for the person that you love?
