It is midnight. Getting back from a party with his wife and two friends, Farzad hits something by his car. No one sees anything! After a long discussion, all confused and frightened, they leave the scene to one of friend’s house to think it over and do the right thing. But primary talks about the accident are soon replaced by discussions about hidden secrets.
