    One-hundred-year-old Aslan, the head of a death squad in his youth, is living with his other single old fellows in a remote village in the northern-west of Iran. Since he came to the village 45 years ago, no man has ever died in the village! Now, most of the population are old and disabled men. All done with their lives; they believe the only way to bring death back to the village is to commit suicide! But it is not as easy as they think.
