With the return of their friend Ahmad from Germany, a group of old college pals decide to reunite of a weekend by the Caspian Sea. The fun starts right away as they quickly catch on the plan of lively Sepideh, who has brought along Elly, her daughter's kindergarten teacher, in hopes of setting her up with recently divorced Ahmad. But seemingly trivial lies, which start accumulating at the seashore, suddenly swing round and come back full force when one afternoon Elly suddenly vanishes.

A convoluted story due to cultural complications where womens rights don't get the same respect as men do. Hence each characters run around doing things that otherwise don't make much sense.

Each human beings in this story doesn't seem developed from growing up in a cultural and religious oppressive state. Religion and hypocrisy seems to go hand in hand.

As a fan of world cinema I love to learn about other peoples and cultures, even when it makes me uncomfortable. Perhaps especially then. This film certainly did that. The way the story unfolded seemed both familiar and foreign at the same time. I think I'll have to see it again. I empathize with Elly and to a lesser extent Sepideh, although I think her initial intentions were good. I do enjoy Iranian films very much.

Disappointing story. For a group of people who met in university, they are not a bright bunch of people. Characters not well developed.
