No other language has so many words for the notion of pain than Farsi does. When the orig­i­nally Iranian chore­o­g­ra­pher and dancer Arezo gets a surprise visit from her brother Koshan, this obser­va­tion becomes the leit­motiv of a serene, emotional tug-of-war between two refugees. Where does pain lead to tension, where to concil­i­a­tion? In sober colours, the director visu­alises the struggle of two creative people trying to give vent to an unspeak­able trauma from the past that they have in common, but are unable to share.
