Ali, who has forsworn drugs, returns to his mother’s house after three years to make up for the damage he has done and to introduce his fiancée, but the family, who have gathered because Ali’s nephew is going abroad, aren't about to forgive Ali for his previous lies, the damage that they caused and their bitter memories. Not that other members of the family don't have some secrets of their own. The next day the mother tricks everyone to gather them all together. A full reconciliation may be too much to hope for but a lot of attitudes are changed.
