Synopsis

Ghazal and her husband Farhad, who works in a laboratory, have been having their disagreements lately. When she tells him she is pregnant, instead of welcoming the news, he observes that it is a sin to bring a child in this world. Then he disappears. Ghazal comes home to find their apartment ransacked. She is abducted and threatened. Her abductors want to know where Farhad is hiding. In fact he has left her a note on the refrigerator telling her that he has gone to a place called "heaven". Strange things are happening. She finds out that Farhad's lab had been conducting dangerous experiments and that Farhad absconded with the results...
