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.
