Synopsis

Edra and her mom Jimnaz live together. Jimnaz is a woman who’s obsessed with her son, whereas Edra is a passive guy who is dominated by this obsession. One day, a posh, middle aged and grumpy woman enters the elevator. When the elevator stops on the first floor, Edra gets trapped in the lift with the woman. The woman panics and gets angry at Edra’s continuous smiles and passive behavior. As a result of this tragical situation, Edra loses his smile. And his fate changes.
