Movie synopsis: A group of Iranian students devote their time to a seemingly commendable activity, rehearsing a play. In a country bound by centuries-old rules, such an innocent action, as travelling to a festival, abroad may trigger a series of dramatic events. Tension arises not only from the varying motivations of the company's individual members, but primarily from the not-exactly-approving attitude of the parents. Family conflicts, a frequent topic of contemporary Iranian cinema, are depicted across all generations and create a web of disconcerting images. The camera slowly and patiently circles the characters; the drama is just as discreet as the dinner conversations, but as strong as a cup of morning coffee.
