In a Mughlai restaurant in Toronto, a late night visit from a mysterious stranger rattles the cage and shatters the peace.  Now Ayub must face reality, the family he’s left behind, and the dreams he’s abandoned, all while keeping the restaurant clean to a mirror shine.

From award-winning playwright and author Anosh Irani,  Behind the Moon is an achingly beautiful story of love and loss, freedom and faith, the meaning of brotherhood, and how we begin a new life. (
