Synopsis

Ahmadreza and Saeedeh got divorced and Ahmadreza is now married to his ex-wife’s friend, Mahshid. They are on their last court’s session to transfer their son Amirhossein’s custody to his father. Saeedeh wants to hide the child before the last court’s session, which takes place in the same time as Ahmadreza and Mahshid’s trip. But Ahmadreza finds out. So he goes to her place. And they have an argument. Ahmadreza decides to take his son. As a reaction, Saeedeh locks herself in the bathroom. They open the door. Now Saeedeh is unconscious. Few minutes later she recovers. Ahmadreza and Mahshid leave. Mahshid goes down the stairs to bring Amirhossein.

Director’s Statement

The concept of staircase was always attractive to me. You can feel some sort of uncertainty and suspension in it. Just like the time you are sleeping and dreaming. When you open your eyes and you are uncertain to go upstairs or downstairs. I was determined to work on that story. Something between reality and fiction.
