Iran, 1988. Thousands of political prisoners, locked up since the aftermath of the 1979 revolution, are massacred. The latter, revolutionaries opposed to Khomeini, are liquidated in the greatest secrecy. Among them, Fatemeh Zarei, my mother. While the Iranian state still denies its crimes and is still trying to erase the traces of them, the film goes in search of places, objects and gestures that will allow the silence to be unravelled, where only the intimate remains as a testimony of a policy.
