Lake Urmia in Northern Iran was once the biggest lake of the Middle East.
But human influence has set its course and brought the drought.
Nowadays just 5% of the original lake remain. The rest is dried out and covered by salt.
It became a political symbol all over the country.
This cinematic essay observes the places of present and past and weaves a new narration with fragments of identity and memory.
