Synopsis

Driving across wide landscapes, a family navigates a road trip full of conflicting emotions. Dad has a broken leg and a mood to match while Mum fusses over her two children and the dog. As the destination draws closer, the claustrophobia in the car grows alongside the love they have for each other.

Our take

Recalling the poetic realism of Abbas Kiarostami and his father Jafar Panahi, Panah Panahi’s sensational debut uproariously speeds through the picturesque terrains of northern Iran. Full of laughter and songs, this heartfelt family road trip embodies the unconditional love that stands against harm.
