In Sister Radio, sisters Fatemeh and Shirin move to Edinburgh from Iran in the 1970s. They build their new lives in Scotland until something tears their relationship apart. For 43 years they live together, side by side, while not uttering a single word. They live their lives: they cook, read their coffee grains, listen to the radio. As both sisters try to remember their lives in Tehran, a once in a lifetime pandemic forces them to confront their memories of a terrible betrayal that tore their lives asunder and left them with nothing to say to each other for four decades.
Sister Radio explores sisterhood, identity and the impact migration can have on families and their relationships.
