Directed by: Panah Panahi
Starring: Pantea Panahiha, Hasan Majui, Rayan Sarlak, Amin Simiar 

Driving across endless miles of rugged landscape, a family navigates a long road trip alongside a range of conflicting emotions. Dad’s got a broken leg and a mood to match whilst Mum fusses over her two children and their pet dog. And when he’s not drawing on the car windows, their energetic youngest son couldn’t be louder as he sings along to the car radio whilst his elder brother tries to concentrate on theroad ahead. As the journey twists and turns and their destination draws ever closer, the chaotic claustrophobia in the car grows as does the love and affection they have for each other. The unspoken reason for the trip hints at a personal or political danger for the eldest child, yet the film also depicts humour and the warmth of a loving family, Panah Panahi’s thrilling debut feature is a treasure; both tender and quirky.
