(This film is about the dark years of Iran in the 1980s, just after the revolution when many political prisoners were in prisons under sentence.) A couple in their forties live in an urban no-man’s-land in the suburbs of Teheran. Reza works as a handyman. Maryam is a childminder. They grieve for their deceased son, Omid, by pouring their love into the cat he adopted. One day, the cat disappears. They go on the hunt for it with increasing desperation.
