The subject of the disappearances has been present in the cinema of Mani Haghighi since the beginning of his work. Abadan is the name of a city and oil port of southern Iran. The director's grandfather, Ebrahim Golestan, lived there for some time and Haghighi's mother, Lili Golestan, a translator and owner of an art gallery, grew up there. During the war against Iraq, Abadan was destroyed because of its key location within Iran. The old Amir wants to travel there, but it disappears.
