Mania Akbari, star of Abbas Kiarostami's Ten, is one of Iran's most distinctive filmmakers and. One. Two. One is her latest feature, and most confrontational work, whose banning finally led to her exile from Iran.

In an Iranian society that places heavy emphasis on beauty regarding a woman’s worth, Ava (Amiri) finds herself the victim of an acid attack to the face courtesy of a former long-term partner who does not take kindly to her interest in another man. Built around a series of extended conversations, One. Two. One documents various stages of Ava’s recovery process, and gives insights into the various men involved in her life, whether she wishes them to be or not.
