He takes the opportunity and helped by a friend, he goes to the south of Iran as a camera operator with a filming group to exit the country illegally. He makes a mistake and takes money from the bank and the police trace him. Rama pays money to some smugglers and they send him to a deserted island to wait for a launch that will take him abroad.
