This was supposed to be the last day in the life of murderer Mansour. Islamic laws holds the victim's relatives responsible for taking him from this life to the next. But on the set date, they simply don't show up. An excruciating wait ensues. A powerful, existentialist film from a stone-old jail in Tehran; a handheld camera records one man's story between life and death, revenge, and forgiveness.
