In his novel “A Little Kiss”, Shebli writes: “Death would feel like a little kiss for you, if your conscience is at ease. However if you are guilty of sins…”. Mohammad Reza Sa’di, a highly acclaimed Iranian writer returns to his hometown after 38 years of living abroad. The reason he is back is the death of his son, whom he dearly loved, by suicide. Sa’di has started feeling a presence of death in his life ever since, and has been worried of dying abroad and forgetting his hometown altogether. So now the fact that he is back in Iran calms him. His old friend, Esmaeil Shebli accompanies him in his journey to visit his son’s grave. Shebli is busy writing his final novel and during their journey, he meets various characters of his own story and realizes that these characters may remain intact even after the story ends. Later each one of them is taken by the angel of death. Shebli dies with a little kiss, but it’s not the case for Sa’di.
