Synopsis

The New Year's Eve and the Iran-Iraq war, Tehran is being repeatedly attacked with missiles. Gilaneh, a lonely middle-aged villager has to send her son to the war. She must also accompany her daughter to Tehran in search of her son-in-law, who illegally left the service... 15 years later: again the New Year's Eve, and Gilaneh - fatigued with life - is taking care of her chemically-wounded son and is also far away from her daughter. Incapable of looking after her son, Gilaneh is waiting for a woman from the South who lost her husband in the war and made a promise to get married to Gilaneh's son...
The film depicts people whose love and destiny have been violated and changed by war.
