Akiko,a pretty and slightly distant sociology student works nights as a high-class escort. Instead of studying for her exams and meeting her grandmother, she reluctantly goes to the house of her latest client, retired sociology professor Takashi. The next morning, she allows him to give her a ride to university, crossing paths with her volatile boyfriend, Noriaki. The latter assume that the kind old man is Akiko’s grandfather, thus allowing an odd role-playing routine to begin, until,perhaps, the hoax is discovered. After Certified Copy and Ten, Like Someone in Love offers a new facet of Kiarostami’s study of human relations and unforeseeable encounters.
