Three desperate but determined women end up on the street in night-time Teheran. They have nowhere to go. They don't know each other and each has their own problem and social background, yet their lives will touch without them knowing.
After an evening spent with a girlfriend, the teenage girl Setareh does not return home. She has made a date with her forbidden boyfriend by a bus stop, to elope together. But she can't get hold of him. When it's too late to go home, she roams the city at the end of her tether. Hengameh is a married woman who fears she is pregnant. Her husband makes it abundantly clear that it is the last thing he wants. When she drives around the city in despair, looking for a way to get a legal abortion, she is arrested because she is on the street without her husband.
Finally, the simple Saiideh has a very different problem. She's just had a baby, but because her husband is in jail, she can't pay the hospital bill and is in danger of losing her child.
With simple means, the debutant Pourya Azarbayjani sketches an impressively dark picture of the situation in his country. The stories are unfinished, just as in reality we don't know what the future will bring for women in Iran.
