A journey to the end of the night, Tehran-style.

This stunning film, reminiscent of the groundbreaking 1960s films of Antonioni (but more radical in spirit), begins as a taxi driver finds that the young woman passenger who just disappeared into the night has left an infant in the back seat of his cab. The man's efforts to find the woman take him, and us, on a visually and intellectually compelling urban odyssey.
