The film’s synopsis reads, “It’s always the same! The last time the sky started getting cloudy, the weather became so wild that the storm could have pulled down the trees. It was pouring rain, the birds were screaming around their nests. One of the guys said he saw the sun flashing dim and light once or twice.”
Starring Sareh Bayat and Hamidreza Azarang, the Iranian film was premiered at the ‘Soda-ye-Simorgh’ section of the 35th edition of Iran’s Fajr Film Festival.
