The plot has a lot of twists and turns to keep the audience interested throughout the film. The film roughly has a two-hour runtime.

As mentioned, the movie is not based on a true story. However, the director Babak Anvari was inspired by real-life events. Therefore the idea of this movie is original.
During a conversation with Digital Spy, Anvari stated, “Obviously it’s a work of fiction. I’m taking inspiration from real events and heavily fictionalising it, but as it was brewing, I was watching the world events and everything that is happening, it definitely affected the story and the central theme of it.”
