Rakhshan Bani Etemad's urban drama centers on Tuba (Golab Adineh), a factory worker and matriarch of a raucous Tehran family. Her older daughter is pregnant and married to an abusive husband. The younger one, a high school student, is consumed with worry over a neighbor girl who suffers abuse at the hands of her father. Her youngest son is caught up in political radicalism and in danger of derailing his college aspirations, and the older one, Abbas (Mohammad Reza Forutan), is disgusted with his dead-end job and will do almost anything to realize his dream of moving to Japan to support the family. After losing all his money in what turns out to be a scam, Abbas' desperation gets the better of his judgement and he becomes involved in a drug deal that nearly costs him his life. ~ Tom Vick, All Movie Guide
