Directed by Ahmad Bahrami, the film is set in a remote brick manufacture factory that produces bricks in an ancient way.
Many families with different ethnicities work in the factory and the boss seems to hold the key to solving their problems.
Forty-year-old Lotfollah, who has been born on-site, is the factory supervisor and acts as go-between for the workers and the boss.
The boss asks Lotfollah to gather all the workers in front of his office in order to talk to them about the shutdown of the factory.
Now, the only issue that has occupied Lotfollah’s mind is to keep Sarvar, the woman he has been in love with for a long time, unharmed.
The cast list of the film includes Ali Baqeri, Farrokh Nemati, Mehdi Nassaj, Majid Farhang, and Mahdieh Nassaj.
