Translation of Ebb

A Film by Javad Abdolahzade

Synopsis

Why should you be afraid?
Unaffected people who play with the glory of the sea, they get away of that to get closer to fear.

This movie is the story of a family who loves fear and destruction, fear is the most honest sense and reminds us of absence and destitution.
