Synopsis

Iranian drama written and directed by Behnam Behzadi. In present-day Tehran, the capital's air pollution has reached dangerous levels due to thermal inversion. As a result, Niloofar (Sahar Dolatshahi)'s elderly mother (Shirin Yazdanbakhsh) is advised to move out of the city for the sake of her health. Niloofar's family decides she must be the one to take her mother away from Tehran as she is still single and childless. Although she initially agrees, Niloofar has second thoughts about leaving the life she's worked so hard to build for herself in the city including her successful tailoring business and a budding romantic relationship with an old friend, which she has kept secret from her family. When she confronts her family about her disagreement with their decision they accuse Niloofar of being selfish and uncaring towards her mother. Will she stand up for her own desires and stay in Tehran or succumb to her family's wishes and move away with her ailing mother?
