| Simple story of a man who goes looking for his disappeared wife
Seyed Mahmoud is a welder working in laying out new railroad tracks in the south of Iran. One day at work, he is informed that something happened to his wife. He returns to his town to find the wife has disappeared several days ago. The bulk of the film is his search for her.

Eventually we learn what happened to the wife but the narrative of those events is incomplete. That poses a thorny problem to the husband. At this point the film rushes to a closure. It's a happy ending but abrupt. Disappearing redux. Disappearance replayed on a larger scale. Vanishing without a trace to find happiness.

This is the director's second feature.
