Her father’s death is ruled a suicide, but Negar (Negar Javaherian) does not agree with the decision. Handsome Peyman, who worked for her father, tries to help her reach peace of mind.

But when Negar investigates on her own, she begins to have visions of what really happened to her father. Father and daughter have discussions and relive family moments, and he provides her with clues in real time that steer her towards the truth.

Negar discovers her father was in business with a ruthless criminal, and vows revenge, but her new insights cause her to cast suspicion on everyone around her. This absorbing drama is a mystery-thriller with a touch of the supernatural.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
