The film which represents Iran at the competition stars Parivash Nazariyeh. The 2008 movie recounts the story of a widow, Ra'na, who lives in a rustic house with her aging father and repairs items such as lanterns for the locals.
Ra'na's father suggests she consider marrying their distant neighbor Rahmat, and consider she does, as she goes about her everyday tasks of checking fishing nets, lugging coal and caring for her aging dad in the remote, fog-cloaked mountains.
