Synopsis of Film:
 
A young woman, Fereshteh who teaches at a Tehran high school has lost her husband recently. According to the law and tradition, she has to leave the fate of her two sons (9 and 7 years old) and the wealth of her husband to her father in law who is a traditional minded man, while she has to return to her father's house.
 
 
With the help of her four colleagues (each having an unresolved problem in their life), Fereshteh manages to show a reaction to her condition... the concept of the film is confrontation of tradition and modernism.
