Master filmmaker Dariush Mehrjui stuns audiences with this magical realist drama. Shayan (Ali Mosaffa), a successful young doctor, is shaken by the discovery of a seemingly incurable brain tumor. His determination to end it all is thwarted, however, when he encounters a village seemingly untouched by time. A mysterious herbalist and a traumatized woman (Leila Hatami) become key figures in Shayan’s life; a life he thought he would have to bid farewell. A fantastic ensemble cast, stunning landscapes, and beautiful visuals make this film shine above the rest. Winner of Best Director at the 2011 Fajr Film Festival.
