Maryam learns that her son, thought lost, is still alive. He was raised by a notorious showman and vaudeville performer. With a group of acrobats and outsiders, the young woman sets out on a search and encounters charlatans, mischief-makers and shamans along the way. Lakzadeh’s third feature film is a furious, crazy fantasy road movie – raw and fairytale-like, melodic and chaotically narrated, it takes place in its own world of mythological references, full of memories of Jodorowsky and the magical realism of Fellini or Kusturica. A film of transformation and transitions.
Afterwards: talk with the actor Pedram Sharifi!
