Directed by Mostafa Mehraban, the 13-minute flick tells the story of Rasoul who has to deliver a cradle to his martyred friend’s widow.
With Rasoul returning from the southern war zone to the northern part of the country, his wife Laya plans on going back to the war zone with him.
The cradle becomes an excuse for Rasoul to reject his wife’s request.
