A family set out from Tehran on an uncertain journey across a ruggedly beautiful landscape, with the destination shrouded in mystery.


A forlorn father is relegated to the back seat due to a broken leg; a mother laughs as she holds back tears; energetic Little Brother instigates relentless car karaoke; while Big Brother is eerily quiet. As the trip progresses, Big Brother’s silence begins to reveal more about their fate and how in their barren surroundings, family is the most important thing.


Any story involving two generations and a dog packed into a car together is guaranteed to bring out the full range of human emotion, but Panah Panahi’s debut feature does more than that – it brings you along for the ride.
