Synopsis

Set in a village in northern Iran that has been devastated by an earthquake. A film crew arrive to shoot a film called `And life goes on'. A young mason who has been hired as a waiter on set plays a small part in the film, and finds that his acting partner is the girl next door with whom he is in love. Her parents, who refused to let them marry before the earthquake, are now dead and, even though her grandmother is still against the match, the man takes the view that now no-one has a roof to love under, all are equal.
