Brief synopsis

Damascus, Syria, nowadays. A taxi drives into a traffic jam. Walid, at the steering wheel, is a student and a part-time taxi driver. Souhaire, a roguish young woman, sits in the back seat of the cab. She is not a mere customer, she is Walid’s girlfriend.

The two lovers drive out of the city in search of an isolated place. As they are not married, they must hide to share intimate moments. Walid parks the cab. They start kissing but a car parks nearby and they must stop. Souhaire is fed up with their furtive meetings. She mentions a friend from high school, Sulmaze, who lives in Teheran. Why not visit her? That way, she and Walid could spend time together far from Damascus. Walid is surprised but accepts. They embark on a train to Iran…
