    Nawal is a 33-year-old Iranian woman who has decided to take a new direction. She is hopping to break a long silence through a project. Eight years following the controversial 2009 Iranian presidential elections, in the middle of the boiling ambiance of Tehran, two realities meet each other. Nawal-With Mehdi- is on the way to bring a forgotten-unfinished theater project back to life. This is like an effort to remember memories in this world of forgetting.
