Rate This Movie:

In an old and dank four-story building, which needs to be repaired and is located in the suburb, four families live. The representative of the building, Abbas, lives in the first floor and aims to evict the tenants; thereby, he seeks to take the building under his own control with the help of a real estate agency. The tenants have received the notice to vacate the house, yet it is not possible for them to fulfill it. With the help of another real estate agency, the tenants find out that the notice to vacate is of no credit since the heir of the house is unknown. Thereafter, the tenants and Abbas are constantly debating the eviction and the repairing of the building. Even some construction workers are brought to the building, but they cannot get the job done due to many conflicts there. Finally, the worn-out texture of the building becomes more evident than ever by the water flowing from the fourth floor to the first one and drowning the entire building.
