A retrospective family history, set against the backdrop of the turbulent events in Iran in 1978. Using a mosaic-like collage of old photographs and archival footage, Bahman tells the story of an unrequited love that led him into the centre of the revolutionary events. In the end, his sacrifice personifies the thousands of young men who never returned home.

“Didn’t I tell you that girl would ruin your life?”, the father asks his dead son who visits him in his dreams. “I always looked to the bottom of the creek, but you saw only the surface.”
