A beautiful, independent woman returning home after seven years in the US meets a violent end on the streets of Tehran in this tightly-plotted Iranian film noir reminiscent of the dark and stylish films of David Fincher.
A quirky old police detective and a cunning young officer use less-than-legal tactics to interview the suspects.

First-time screenwriter Sam Gharibian (son of veteran Iranian actor-director Faramarz Gharibian) shrewdly channels Hitchcock here, whose philosophy that there's little difference between thinking about and committing a crime gets an Iranian twist. Rambod Javan was named Best Supporting actor at Fajr Film Festival.
