synopsisA meditative symphony on the city and death. The filmmaker returns to places where he, 18 years earlier, had made a film about suicide. Now, in the crowded streets of Tehran and in the city’s rundown corners with flanked walls, he searches for the reasons that had led three sisters to end their lives together.
“Their lives summarized in a few sentences; sentences are all in the past tense, there is no future nor present.”
