The professional cynic and philosophy student Jahel lives together with his mentally unstable sister Mary, who suddenly enters into a marriage with the football-loving and apparently quite wealthy Shahrokh. When Jahel is kicked out, he wants to go to his musician friend Bahman – and can’t get rid of the taxi driver Nasser. A night of surreal dialogues, characters and events begins. Hossein Mahcam’s directing debut is an absurd tragicomedy full of wit and esprit about a group of outsiders who don’t give up and make the best out of everything. Or out of nothing …

Followed by an online conversation with the filmmaker (inquired)!
