In a poor area in Tehran, some families reveal to the Social Services that one of their neighbours keeps his children from leaving the house.
The social worker in charge of the investigation discovers that the two little twin girls have been living behind bars in their house since they were born. The father argues: “My daughters are like flowers. They may wither with the sun.”
