Working as a singer at funerals is really not an attractive job. When Vahid is abandoned by his fiancée, he sings at weddings to increase his chances with women. Mina, a receptionist in a beauty clinic, has little selfconfidence because of her obesity, but she manages to catch a few men with her erotic telephone voice. And Hessam, former bodybuilder, now personal coach, even rejects a film role because he prefers to concentrate on the task of training a young athlete to become a champion. It's not easy to find love in the big city of Tehran, but the three midlife crisis heroes still go on looking for it.
