Friends since childhood, Shahrokh (Milad Keymaram) and Siavash (Alireza Kamalinejad) have become embroiled in petty crime during their formative years. The hot-headed Shahrokh has a penchant for gambling and has always relied on Siavash for support when his back is pressed up against a wall. While Shahrokh seems destined to continue his life of crime, the married Siavash is seeking to change his ways. One fateful day he chases after a thief and retrieves a bag that he snatched from a woman (Hengameh Ghaziani) on the street. However, when Siavash goes to return the bag to the woman, he finds that there is far more to her than meets the eye.

'Rabidity' won best film prize at Istanbul's Iranian Film Festival and screened at the 2016 CineIran Festival in Toronto.
