An old lady goes down the memory lane. She narrates the story of her life mostly through the shoes of the people she remembers and the events of her country.
She gives us the reasons why a story can be told through shoes, so well that you don't need to see their faces but you can imagine them.


Payman Haghani was born in Tehran in 1982. His memorable days of primary school began when the Iran-Iraq war ended. Later he dropped out of university and managed to pursue his real passion, filmmaking. He made his first short film "Cell No. 3" in 2001 which was a success.††He then seriously started to study cinema.
