Directed by Kaveh Mazaheri, the 15-minute film narrates the story of a young married couple and their 5-year-old kid.
The three of them are grabbling with financial issues that the father of the family has brought upon them.
A brief synopsis for the short reads, “Majid, a financially struggling man, comes up with a ploy in order to better the life of his wife, Sara”.
