In a country torn apart by war a young woman in her thirties watches over her older husband. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. He has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and brothers. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, the woman one day decides to say things she could never have spoken before, even though they have been married for ten years. Her husband has unconsciously become “the patience stone” – a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it.
Admission free, donations are welcome!
