Synopsis

After six agonizing months apart, Elahe is finally allowed to visit her political prisoner husband. She and her little daughter, Tara, have just one day to prepare for this precious meeting. Which the pair lovingly spend getting a photograph taken as a keepsake for their indentured husband and father. But things soon take a dispiriting turn in this sensitive and deeply personal short about prisoners’ rights and the effect incarceration can have on families and young children.
