After fifteen years in prison, Mansour and Mohamad are suddenly pardoned while waiting on death row. They return to their lives in Tehran, to the smog and inflation and disorientation of a world so changed and yet so much the same. Mohamad returns to his wife and his daughter Marjan, now twenty years old. Mansour returns to his sister and her family.
After their initial elation wears off, the two friends begin to feel confined by the world around them and the judgements that it passes on them - it is as though only their physical bodies have been released from prison, leaving their minds trapped and preventing them from moving on. This mysterious film explores the depths of friendship, the unpredictable nature of love and the blurring of lines between right and wrong, good and evil.
