Leila has had enough. She's a lonely woman with a dark and ambiguous past. Grown up in a boarding house, she has never tasted the true taste of intimacy. Tuba is the result of her failed marriage. The separation of the mother and daughter has taken away Leila's will to live, so she goes to surrender herself to death. An angel arrives and the emotional bond between these two women cuts the chains that have trapped her bit by bit, revealing the 'big truth' for her.
