An irresistible family road trip and an excellent debut film from the son of celebrated Iranian New Wave filmmaker Jafar Panahi who co-produced this film. It won Best Film at the London Film Festival last year. Dad sits moodily in the back of the car while Mum drives and tries to laugh when she’s not holding back tears. Meanwhile an energetic youngster keeps exploding with song and scrambling around the car. Add to that their sick dog and the mysterious older son and you have a perfect combination of emotions rising and falling along with the evocative Iranian landscape and soundtrack.

This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
