A cold winter’s night in Teheran. A young couple has a serious problem and just several hours to resolve it. They go from hospital to hospital, but all of them refuse to admit the girl in urgent need of medical help. The timid Sara is unwilling to disclose details of the injury and personal information the doctors need to contact her parents for emergency surgery approval. The journey through the dark streets of the big city becomes a challenge to their relationship and mutual trust. Caught between traditional values and modern desires, the pair will have to face an uncertain future and tragic consequences of youthful naiveté. The morning sun will see them sobered up and changed forever.  The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
