A three-tiered story of a day in the life of Tehran, seen through the eyes of a battered wife, a mullah, and an elderly couple. First, a middle-class couple that is confronted with domestic violence. Will the woman file a complaint with the authorities? Then, a mullah, embarking on a surrealist negotiation with the thief who stole his wallet. Finally an elderly couple whose TV set is broken, but who do not dare to open the door to the young repairman.
