The forensic pathologist Dr Nariman has a car accident with a motorcyclist and injures his 8-year-old son. He offers to take the child to a clinic nearby, but the father refuses his help and his money. A few days after, in the hospital where he works, Dr Nariman finds out that the little boy has been brought for an autopsy after a suspicious death. Dr Nariman is facing a dilemma: is he responsible for the child's death due to the car accident or did the child die of food poisoning, according to other doctors' diagnosis.

The film starkly depicts the worlds of the haves and have-nots in contemporary Iran. It is another fine example of the kind of painfully honest cinema being produced in that part of the world.

Reviews

“Writer/director Vahid Jalilvand straddles both worlds as he weaves this complex psychological drama, showing sympathy for all his characters.” – Jennie Kermode – Eye for Film

“In a landscape often coldly desaturated by the camera, the plot is secondary to the gripping performances. The scene where an angry, grieving Moosa goes to a factory to confront someone he blames is a scarifying tour-de-force.” – Craig Mathieson, The Sunday Age.

“A handsomely made, exceptionally well-played drama that largely works despite a few significant plot holes. – Jay Weissberg, Variety
