In the midst of the 1953 Iranian coup d’etat, teenagers Roya and Bahman find literary oasis and first-love in the small, dusty neighborhood stationery shop. On the eve of their wedding, they are set to meet at the town square, but when violence suddenly erupts Bahman never shows. Fate reunites the first loves after sixty years, giving Roya a chance to ask Bahman the questions that have haunted her for more than half a century.
