"“God has created us for each other,” says Maryam to her husband Mohammad. Living in almost total isolation in rural Iran, the impoverished middle-aged couple is not only deeply in love, they literally complete each other. After losing both her forearms and one foot in a train accident, Maryam went against her parents’ will and eloped with her blind suitor. Since then, they’ve happily cared for each other, with her acting as his eyes and him her arms. With graceful compositions and a patient rhythm, director Panahbarkhoda Rezaee observes the small, affectionate gestures of their domestic life, his camera transforming everyday moments into a touching meditation on love. But Mohammad and Maryam’s perfect companionship, self-sufficiency and sense of humour can’t hide the melancholy that is growing between them: she wants a child and he does not. Can they keep walking the path of life together?"
