  • overview

    From the director of 2015’s festival entry Melbourne, comes this mystery/thriller starring Navid Mohammadzadeh (No Date, No Signature). He plays a prison warden in charge of transferring inmates to another facility as the current penitentiary is being razed for an airport-expansion project. During the relocation, however, one prisoner escapes and the warden must find him before his superiors learn about it and his promotion is jeopardized. The riveting drama wastes no time before the cat-and-mouse games begin, and the appearance of a social worker (Parinaz Izadyar, Pig) adds a possible romantic element to the story. Read a review of the film.
