"A breath of fresh air and a truly original work that marks him [Panahi] as a talent to watch."—Elena Lazic, The Playlist

"Demonstrates a skill and control of the medium that's rare for a first film."—Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

"Crackling with energy and outbreaks of exuberant lip syncing, riotously funny at times and quietly devastating at others."—Wendy Ide, Screen International

This feature debut tells the story of a family that takes a road trip across the rugged landscape of Iran to drop their older son off at the border in order to leave the country. Despite the ebullient presence of their younger son, unspoken tensions arise and risks involving the elder son’s flight become increasingly evident as the family approaches its destination. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past, grapple with fears of the unknown, and fuss over their sick dog. The humanist drama is an authentic, raw, and deeply sincere observation of an Iranian family preparing to part with one of their own.
