~~Tehran. After 2,784 days in prison, a man with a suspended death sentence returns to the apartment where he had been living with his wife and tries to get his life back.
Avid to regain his freedom, he must nevertheless face several obstacles preventing him from reaching it: his status as “The Enemy of God,” which forces him to report to the Ministry of Intelligence every Thursday evening, the feeling of being used by warring clans, but also his devastated marriage, his regrets about the information he revealed in prison in order to assure his survival, and his desperate efforts to redeem himself in the eyes of his loved ones.
Over the course of the story, the reader penetrates the meanderings of a corrupt society in which power seeks to control citizens in the name of religion, but not always with success; where human relationships, under the strict rules of Sharia law, go beyond traditions and customs; where smuggling networks and intelligence agencies cross paths and superimpose to form an inextricable web…
To escape the horror of this gigantic, real-life prison, the narrator has nothing but his imagination. Surviving reality will only be possible through novels and poetry… Only words and metaphors are capable of making the walls of this dark world come crashing down.
Love, adultery, desire, and passion are just as transgressive as death.
