Original version in Farsi with English subtitles.

A man loses the ability to cry after the death of his younger brother. Grief, depression and the separation from his wife plunge him into a crisis. He rejects traditional and religious offers, but despite his escape into sarcasm and self-centeredness, he finds himself surrounded by caring friends and relatives. Alireza Motamedi’s second feature film takes an ironic look at a man who moves beyond the expected norms.
