When Pegah realizes on her flight from Tehran to Frankfurt, that all the iranian women around her take off their scarf, she decides to do the same. After the landing, she steps out of the arrival gate full of expectations, to be welcomed by someone. But while everyone around her fall into each others arms, she remains alone. When finally the man, she waited for so long arrives much too late, her first impulse is to not show herself.
An odyssey through the airport begins and soon Pegah realizes that she is in limbo. Stuck in a transit place and unable to arrive in the new country, she decides to put on her scarf again.
