Synopsis:
The events in the film occur during one day, from dawn to sunset. Four cars, carrying people from different social groups, are driving toward the northern region of the country for different purposes. They don't know one another, and they don't get to know one another during the entire trip. They just pass by one another. The viewer becomes, by turns, the companion of the various passengers, including the one who is returned to Tehran at the end of the day in one of the four vehicles - a hearse.
Director's View:
"The plot is actually summarized in the film title, with all its human implications. It is the story of people who pass by one another indifferently. It is also the story of a journey, again with all the time-honored and repeated implications of stories of journeys - from Homer's Odyssey to Antoine de Sainte-Exupery's Little Prince. But what is the destination? Does the traveler know? Isn't he really seeking the destination, perhaps unconsciously, in his inward, spiritual world? And in that case, will the journey lead him to a different understanding?".
