Enigmatic Leena Alam finds here one of her best roles in the cinema.

Zohra, the fiancée

Of a brilliant beauty, she is at the same  time prodigious and distressing. There is  in the tone and her manners something  so particular that attracts to her all the  attentions. She remains a prisoner of the  traditions that soon she is going to  challenge. Her attachment for Darya, an  always absent character, gives an idea of  the sorrow in which certain desperate  women live. Her presence spreads  throughout the film as an illumination.  

Delara

She is Sadegh's wife and Darya's mother.  Her cheerful relations with her husband  place her at once in the center of the  story. She strives to avoid forced  recruitment of her son Darya. Not  receiving any news from him she becomes  inconsolable. This discreet woman devises  a plot that will trap all around her. The  engagement by proxy of his exiled son  gives her wings. Leena Alam finds here  one of its best roles in the cinema. 

Darya, the absent son

Feisty, ambitious, pushy and  disrespectful young man. He has a  dashing figure. His cruelty frightens his  close relations. As a child, he suffered  from hardships in any kinds. Driven by  the desire to rise above his condition, he  made a clean sweep of the past. His fast  ascent raises many problems. We do not  know the real sources of his recent  wealth. He is ready to sell off his dignity  in exchange for easy wealth. When he  decides to build himself a new life, he  forgets everything. He changes his  name, his life and his identity. Without  morality and without love, the only thing  that matters in the world is himself and  nobody else. He erases perpetually any  link with past and his identity of origin.  
Amir the passenger Enigmatic and mysterious of about forty  years old man. We do not know why he  returned to the country. We do not know his intentions. We do not guess what he  looks for. When he becomes the  passenger of the taciturn Sadegh, he  manages to obtain his confidences.  When the taxi driver finally speaks, Amir  is so absorbed that he forgets  everything. We learn that he has a  certain resemblance with Darya. As him,  he often changed his identity. An  indiscretion would have decided his fate.  This pathetically resigned character and  his unprepared return will give the story  an intense allegorical power. 
A taxi, taken in the thunderstorm, the  ideal meeting place, so that two strange  lives make us travel in a fascinating story  of absences and one way trips.
