Living in a small village in Iran, Azadeh wants to hop on a bus to see her father in the hospital, in what might possibly be the last visit. When her mother and brother forbid her from leaving the house, she must take matters into her own hands to outwit her domineering family. In this emotionally poignant drama, issues of control and perseverance define the resolve of two siblings who have the right to say goodbye.
