Synopsis

Mina is a receptionist at an upmarket beauty clinic. Unhappy about her weight but addicted to ice cream, she catfishes men she encounters at work. Hessam, a retired bodybuilder who trains affluent older men, is cast in a film with Louis Garrel, someone neither he – nor anyone around him – has ever heard of, even if the producer assures him that the French actor is very famous. Meanwhile Vahid, a singer at religious ceremonies and an expert mourner, is convinced by his friends to try singing at weddings after his girlfriend breaks up with him.
