Panah Panahi, son and collaborator of embattled filmmaker Jafar Panahi and apprentice to Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami, makes a striking feature debut with this charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving comic drama. It follows a family of four – two middle-aged parents and their sons, one a taciturn adult, the other an ebullient six-year-old – on a road trip to the Iranian border with a furtive purpose. This humanist drama offers an authentic, often comedic, and deeply sincere observation of an Iranian family preparing to part with one of their own.


“A lovable and affecting crowd-pleaser with universal appeal and real potential to become a word-of-mouth hit.” - David Ehrlich, Indiewire
