Mina’s life is tur­ned upsi­de down when she learns that her hus­band Babak was inno­cent of the crime for which he was exe­cu­t­ed. The aut­ho­ri­ties apo­lo­gi­se for the mista­ke and offer the pro­spect of finan­cial com­pen­sa­ti­on. Mina starts a silent batt­le against a cyni­cal sys­tem for her own and her daughter’s sake. Just as her money is run­ning out, a stran­ger named Reza knocks at her door, say­ing he has come to repay a debt he owed to Babak. Mina is guar­ded at first, but incre­a­singly lets Reza into her life, unawa­re of the secret that ties them to one ano­t­her.
Behtash Sanaeeha and Maryam Moghaddam mas­ter­ful­ly pre­sent guilt and ato­ne­ment, a clas­sic tro­pe of Iranian film, as a cine­ma of small, pre­cise ges­tu­res and spaces. Maryam Moghaddam excels in the role of a Mina caught bet­ween lone­li­ness and her strugg­le for self-determination.
