Storyline

Somewhere on the outskirts of modern Iran, at a traditional old house with a fragrant tree-shaded internal yard, a whole family is ceaselessly making nuptial preparations. Being the youngest in the family, the bright-eyed bride-to-be, Pasandideh, can't wait for the arrival of her older sisters; after all, her wedding with the grandson of a friendly family is a marvellous opportunity for a great reunion. Eventually, amid careful bridal arrangements, an unplanned but exciting treasure hunt, and thrilling ghost stories, everything will be soon ready for the joyous event; however, is a single cube of sugar enough to bring sweetness and happiness?
