This is the bitter story of filmmaking in a Cinema based on buisiness. Chakameh Chamani loses her husband and her son in a car accident. She feels guilty as she was the one driving the car. She intends to commit suicide but then she meets Nejat Shekvandi. He is a man who has recently been released from prison. At this time, we realize that this is the story of a movie called "When We Are All Fallen Asleep" whose director is Neyestani. The movie producers interfere in order to create a better filming condition and earn higher incomes as the result. They put Neyestani under pressure and ask him to fire the leading male and female actors of the movie. They believe that the male actor is young and infamous and the female actress is an old stereotypical one. In the next stage, they also dismiss the director himself. From then on, the movie is being produced by its investor, Eshteharian, and his beloved, Khatereh Maghbool. The production of the movie occurs inside the minds of its actor and not in reality. Its script is also being written while in production.
