Film Synopsis

Winner, Achievement in Directing, 2007

Less than excited to see the video her fiance sent from Toronto, where he’s temporarily based before he returns home to marry her, Sara (Bani-Etemad’s daughter, Baran Kosari) seems to be getting cold feet. In their nice high-rise Tehran apartment, Sara and mom Sima (Bita Farahi) share a few loving moments, but Sara slinks off.

Sima is no dummy, and knows — before the audience does — what’s going on. Sara returns having gotten a heroin fix, despite fact that she receives regular methadone treatments.

Sima decides she must drive Sara to a drug center near the Caspian Sea north of Tehran, and the pic becomes a grueling road movie as mother and daughter try to get to their destination in one piece.
