At the edge of an eerie marsh in the middle of the mysterious mountains, all alone,  Pegah finds herself plunging to her death. All we know of her is that she is a young woman wearing a long red raincoat.  Her abstract unreal identity is revealed when she coincidentally meets another woman, Matin.  The look of the two women in the story challenges the matter of their false and true identities. A kind of inversion.
