Iran 2003 74 mins.

  1. A piece of driftwood on the seashore, carried about by the waves.
  2. People walking on the seashore. The oldest ones stop by, look at the sea, then go away.
  3. Blurry shapes on a winter beach. A herd of dogs. A love story.
  4. A group of loud ducks cross the image, in one direction then the other.
  5. A pond, at night. Frogs improvising a concert. A storm, then the sunrise.
