Directed by Mohammad-Hossein Latifi, ‘Leila's Loneliness’ narrates the story of a girl from a rich family who travels from the US to her ancestral homeland, Iran and falls in love with Mohammad, the custodian of a mausoleum in the country.
Despite ideological differences, Leila finds peace in Mohammad’s austere and spiritual lifestyle and gets married to him. Leila faces many ordeals and hardships in her life, but her faith helps her to overcome them.
Considering the script of ‘Leila's Loneliness’, the screenwriter Hamed Anqa said in an interview that,“The series is a religious melodrama. I have been writing suspense fictions filled with murder and harsh scenes for years. So, I decided to write something different having a calm and lovely atmosphere with a focus on human relationships”.
According to a review on the Salam Cinema website, “‘Leila's Loneliness’ is Latifi’s effort to follow his intellectual and spiritual concerns. He seeks to show the lost hopes of a generation and reminds the new generation about the value of being thoughtful about their style of living”.

ifilm English will also repeat each episode of the series the following day at 01:00, 07:00, 12:00 (all GMT times).
