Well-known Iranian actor Behnaz Jafari is distraught after receiving a video plea from a provincial girl begging for help to escape her conservative family. She turns to her friend, the filmmaker Jafar Panahi (played by Panahi himself), to help solve the mystery of the young girl’s troubles. Together, they hit the road to the girl’s village in Iran’s rural northwest where local traditions rule. Iranian director Jafar Panahi (This Is Not a Film, Taxi Tehran) delivers a poetic road movie winner of the Best Screenplay Award in Cannes last year.
