Ahmad, a lawyer who has just gone through a divorce, travels to the north of Iran with his friends and their families. There, he meets Elly. His friends believe he is a suitor for her, but Elly is already engaged. Before they figure out a solution, Elly disappears suddenly. Life becomes fragile and mysterious for Elly’s friends after she vanishes. Desperate and helpless, they start unveiling their flaws to each other and finally they blame everything on Elly in order to lessen their own pain and suffering. Sepideh is the only one among them who tries to protect Elly’s dignity but her husband Amir objects her violently. With each passing second, the void in their lives gets deeper. Later they find a dead body in the water but they’re not sure if it’s Elly. After Elly’s departure, her friends reveal their innermost selves to each other. The joyful friendship they once had turns into anger and hatred.
