College professor Youssef (Parviz Parastui) never let his blindness stand in the way of a rich life, but when he undergoes experimental surgery in France, he's thrilled to have his sight restored -- even though he now faces many new adjustments. Returning to Iran, Youssef struggles to reconcile reality with the images created in his mind's eye for years. Award-winning director Majid Majidi co-wrote the screenplay for this bittersweet drama.
