Three characters : a painter, a school prefect, a young mother. The setting: a school yard, a merry-go-round. Nine months, 3 seasons without a summer. Once upon a time a painter and a school prefect lived together, then split up. Now, every day, one hour before the children are let out of school, a mother arrives and sits on the merry-go-round in the school, waiting for the bell to ring. She and the painter engage in a conversation that continues day by day. Then the mother realizes that the painter is doing her portrait on a mural.
In one creation after another, Koohestani has imposed a poetical, critical style, breaking with the naturalism of traditional Iranian theater.
