Poignant drama about a mother who ends up in an unlikely situation. 37 years after her daughter Mitra was killed in Iran, Haleh (Jasmin Tabatabai) leads a successful, but quiet life in the Netherlands. The peace is disrupted by the arrival of Leyla, who betrayed her daughter at the time. Recently, this woman came to the Netherlands and now she is a loving mother herself. She does not seem to recognise Haleh; is this really Leyla? With her brother Mohsen’s (Mohsen Namjoo) help, Haleh tries to fathom the truth.
