Presenting our video about 'Tarof'!

This is a short video describing the concept of Tarof, the Persian form of etiquette, to people who may not be familiar with it.

As you can see in the video, it can be slightly extreme, and can sometimes get in the way of you getting what you want. But overall, it's like a dance, where all parties know what they should say in any given situation, and a way for people to skirt around topics, and not be completely direct with one another, to show respect and humility towards the other.
