Shakib (Mohsen Tanabandeh) is a homeless day laborer who lost his wife and son in an earthquake years ago. Over the last couple of years, he has been in a relationship with Ladan (Mahsa Hejazi), a deaf and mute woman. The construction site on which he works turns out to be the set of a film about the atrocities committed by Hitler during WWII.
Against all odds, he is given a house and an opportunity of a lifetime. When Ladan learns about his movie role and the house, she comes to his workplace to ask for help and a place. Shakib’s plan to hide her fails and threatens to destroy his chance to be somebody.
Tickets are free with a PITT id, regular tickets $10, Non-Pitt students $5 with ID.
