Elderly bachelor Manouchehr is struggling to adapt to a life of retirement, and still occasionally shows up at the cigarette factory he worked at for 30 years. The old man smokes marijuana, gets high, and eats the night away. Each day follows the same monotonous pattern. He longs to escape his mundane small town existence. The death of Manouchehr's mother triggers a trip to Tehran to catch up with an old childhood friend, but upon his arrival, Manouchehr meets the eccentric hotel receptionist Kaveh, whose greatest ambition is to move to Mars. He also encounters Masha, who has just escaped from a clinic. The three soon bond in and become a somewhat unlikely trio. The film captures the beauty in moments of solitude, and explores the limitless possibilities of friendship in this minimal poetic story. Subtle, laconic humour characterises Behtash Sanaeeha’s wonderfully balanced directorial debut.
