The New York-based The Suitors represented the directorial debut of Iranian Ghasem Ebrahiman. Though they're living in the Big Apple, a group of Iranians cling on to their old, traditional ways. One of their traditions requires the slaughtering of a sheep. This they try to do in the confines of their apartment. Their neighbors assume that the knife-wielding Iranians are terrorists, and in a twinkling, the SWAT teams come roaring into the vicinity.
