Azim, an Afghan refugee, who works at the municipality at night, lives in Tehran along with his family. Being the head of the entire family and as the eldest brother, he arranges for his brother Faroogh, and his family along with their mother to be smuggled into Germany. But at the last moments Faroogh, shamefully makes his decision known to Azim that he’s not going to take their mother who is very attached to her grandchildren. Azim who feels lonely and is furious, has yet another (bad) surprise: he has to choose between his own life and the one he considers the most important in his life...

When I was a child, I fled to Iran with my family and until now in my thirties I’m still living in Iran as an afghan Refugee! So, I can understand with all my heart the millions of Afghan refugees’ feelings as a result of unfair laws and rules. For instance, it’s not legal for an Iranian to donate an organ of theirs to an Afghan. Once more in my second film, as a director and scriptwriter I have tried to be the voice of my compatriots, hoping that the power of cinema could raise people’s awareness and change the laws”.
