Shot in the neck by a fellow soldier, he is in a coma. The passage of time is measured by the sound of his breathing, the slow drip that keeps him alive and the calls to prayer in the streets outside. Consumed by her vigil and his medical care, the woman is alone and desperate for any sign of life from her comatose husband. As her mind appears to unravel, so it becomes intensely clear-sighted. Now is her chance to speak without being censored. Empowered by her husband"s silence she steps out of the shadows of convention and repression and begins her confessional....She pours out her love and her hate, her sexual desires and her hopes, as though to the black patience stone of Persian mythology (which takes in your sins and woes, and eventually shatters... leaving you delivered of pain and suffering). Finally, spurred to new heights of daring, she spills out her most explosive secret.
