Produced by Mehdi Sabbaghzadeh and directed by Kioumars Pourahmad, the movie tells the story of two sisters who do not know a secret.
Nasrin lives with her single mother. Whenever she asks about her father, she's told that he suddenly went abroad and never came back.
Narges is another girl who lives with her single father. Upon asking the same question about her mother, she gets the same reply as Nasrin does.
When the two girls meet each other by coincidence during a school program, they realize they've been lied to about their parents and that they were twin sisters.
Their father is engaged to get married to another woman, but Narges can't stand her. The two girls swap places and scheme to reunite their parents.
Written by the director and Asghar Abdollahi, the film features actors such as the late Khosro Shakibaee, Afsaneh Bayegan, Ladan Tabatabaee, the late Parvindokht Yazdanian, and Elaheh and Elham Aliyari.
Made in 1995, the movie was nominated in five categories at the 14th edition of the Fajr Film Festival, where it managed to win the awards for best director and best set design.
