During a ritual ceremony in a multi grade school, Pardis, a high school student, is obligated to accompany an elementary student called Naghmeh. To maintain the order of the ceremony in front of the higher officials, the head master of the school is forced to put Pardis in charge and by doing so, introduce her not as a student but Naghmeh’s older sister. Or in other words as a family member.
