A kid is missing… in the dark paths in the lives of the adults…


Negar and Amirali are going to immigrate, but at the very last moment, they face a critical situation: their son, Bardiya, goes missing. Now it is time to unfold all the family secrets…

Director’s View:

People think life is always a straight road and exactly when they are confident their notion is right, they fall into a steep slope and if they lose the power to control everything in time, they will surely have a crash… This can destroy many people…
