Married couple Amir (played by Peyman Moaadi from 2011’s A Separation) and Sara are preparing to move to Melbourne. A few hours before they are to leave, and as they tie up loose ends with the apartment and give final farewells to their family, a well-meaning favour turns into a tragic event that threatens to derail their plans.
