Bahman is a poet, living in the chaotic city of Tehran. Recently, he has been dealing with different problems in his life: his girlfriend, Nassim, is leaving the country, he's losing ownership of his shop and he is constantly being followed by a motorcyclist. Stressed by this situation, he cannot write poems anymore and he's become more isolated and fearful. In a society in which the rich and powerful define the rules, Bahman either needs to build up the courage to fight the injustice or accept the humiliation and lose everything.
