Introduction
One hot summer day in a small village in central Iran, a young boy is selling balloons in the hopes of buying ice cream. His struggle is paralleled by a man from the city, who has to search for a way back home because he has a flat tire. The two stories, though independent unto themselves, are joined by an umbrella, which shades each character's journey.
