The life of a 35 year old man called Majid and his wife Pooneh runs into a crisis because of Majid’s addiction to drugs. In order to keep their marriage, Majid decides to participate in drug rehab camps but his psychological problems makes him run away from the camp.
when he gets back home he encounters a scene that gets him suspicious about Pooneh’s fidelity to their marriage. The conflicts between Majid and Pooneh continue and Pooneh leaves the house and goes to her mother’s house….
The story follows the suspicious thoughts of Majid in a mysterious line of story telling and by using plenty of flash backs and flash forwards. In some scenes the story makes the audience to believe that Majid’s suspicious thoughts are true while in other scenes the harmful effects of Hallucinogen Drugs are shown to be the rout of Majid’s suspicion towards Pooneh.The film takes the audience into the details of Pooneh and Majid’ life through reviewing the stories of their lives in flash backs. The audience feels sympathy for both and like real life sees how their faults and misunderstandings takes their marriage to an end.

Director’s Statement :
As a filmmaker I feel responsible to make the problems of my society bold and tangible so that more people understand it and try to find a solution for it. unfortunately nowadays in Iran there is an increasing rate of addiction to Hallucinogen Drugs among youths and also the number of divorces caused by this phenomenon is increasing everyday. Showing a clear picture of harmful effects of addiction in the relationship of couples is the reason why I want to make this film at this time.
