Synopsis:
Golsa is a 16-year-old girl living with her family in a small town near Tehran.

One day the group decide on a course of action the consequences of which will have unexpected results and turn their little bit of fun into something far more complicated.
The events that follow radically change Golsa’s perspective on life.
