Set over the course of a day, the film follows the journey of three musicians, Amir, his pregnant wife Mahla and their friend Navid. While on their way to Tehran for a music competition, an unprecedented heavy rain severely impacts their journey. Faced with roadblocks and many unexpected difficulties, the three optimistic musicians struggle on. The film shows us that it’s not the finish line that matters but the journey itself. This is captured beautifully through they music they create along their journey. (KIM Sohye)
