Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Saman Salur crafts this tender yet darkly comic tale of two lost souls working together at a lonely gas station that appears to be the very edge of the earth. Sadry and his new assistant may not have much in common on the surface, though the fact that they work together in a remote gas station in a deserted area of Iran is more than enough reason for them to find a common ground. Precious few customers venture out to this region of Iran, so aside from occasional visits by the mailman, Sadry and his disagreeable sidekick are forced to pass the time in relative solitude. But all three of these men have dreams of romance burning deep within their souls, and it's precisely those dreams that serve as their motivation to rise out of bed every morning and go about their daily business as it all is right in the world.
