I wonder why she never visited me in my dreams since she has gone, at least so that I would be sure that she was really here and not just an illusion of the adolescence period!
Saied, a seventy-year-old man, goes back to the street, where he spent his childhood. He searches for everything that used to once exist there. He becomes a young manonce again. He rows a boat back home, his memories float everywhere around him till he arrives at his childhood street. He passes by the dilapidated houses searching for the house of his be loved Narges then he meets a postman who gets rid of the letters that he fails to deliver. They walk together to tell him his story.
