Iraj, an old detective suffering from some strange kind of amnesia, lives in a sanitarium. When Iraj’s sister, Simin, is found dead, Hamid, Iraj’s old colleague and playmate, comes to take him out. After death scene examination, Iraj suspects that his sister is murdered. Going back to Simin’s apartment, he finds out that she has left him a notebook for writing down all that he would forget after a blackout…


Director’s View:

It is an attempt to stick to two genres, crime drama and fantasy film, simultaneously through a story which could happen in any place any time; a story which is both comic and thought provoking. It is also a visual venture in the whole Iranian productions.
