Synopsis

A desperate man in Tehran speaks to the camera: ‘I’m not sure if I’ll be dead or alive tomorrow.’ This is Sahand, who has been in a long-term adulterous relationship with Leila, despite Iran’s threat of the death penalty for infidelity. Together with Mani, their love child, they flee to Turkey, but get stuck in limbo, with every application to flee to Europe getting pushed down the list. And in this endless waiting we see their relationships change and grow through the smallest of events.
