Using the tone of comedy, this film relates the interwoven destinies of Iranian people living in Tehran today and portrays life in the Iranian capital through three intertwining stories.
A young woman beaten up by her husband wants to lodge a complaint against him. He is a TV presenter above all preoccupied by his image and reputation, and he tried to dissuade her from doing it.
A religious man has his suitcase carrying money and important papers stolen. He tries to convince the thief to give it back to him.
An old couple lives alone in a building. Their TV breaks down. When the TV engineer comes to their place they do not dare open their door, by fear of being stolen by him. What follows is a series of comical situations.
This is the first feature film Mohsen Abdolvahab directed alone. He codirected two earlier films with Rakhshan Bani-Etemad which were selected at FICA: “Gilaneh” and “Mainline”.
In this psychological humorous film we can see Baran Kosari who was a member of the international jury at FICA in 2013.
