The Chorus synopsis:
A deaf old man wearing a hearing aid is walking in the streets of Rasht. When the surroundings get too noisy, he turns off the sound of his hearing aid. Unfortunately, when he returns home, he doesn’t hear his granddaughter, home from school, vainly ringing the doorbell. A chorus of children gathers to penetrate the old man's silence.
A Persian poem from the twelfth century, put on stage by Kiarostami. The development of the text, long a favorite in Persia and the Middle East remains invisible to the viewer of the film, the whole story is told by the faces of the women watching the show.
