Hanieh is a broke forty year old woman on the verge of being thrown out from her apartment. She has tried to make a film based on her own semi-autobiographical script for years, but after accepting that she has no luck to fulfill her dream, she has no other choice than selling the script to one of her best friends. Due to her love for the script and its details, Hanieh is not able to tolerate any indifferent and ignorant reactions during the preproduction, but she decides not to get involved in any conflict with the director, the cast and the crew today. However, during the reading rehearsal, others begin to judge her character as described in the script and name her a bastard and a loser...
