Synopsis

A devout Muslim woman, Pari, arrives in Athens with her older husband, their first time abroad.

They're there to visit their student son, but he is not at the airport to meet them and has not been in his flat for three months. As they begin to search through a city and culture entirely unfamiliar to them, Pari must venture into the darkest corners of the Greek capital — a world populated by heretics and anarchists, where she hopes to find her son, but will discover the hidden depths within herself.

 

'the film is a portrait of a woman (Melika Foroutan) unbowed by her own fears and inhibitions, driven by an almost blind determination to find her son.' - Variety

'The film hinges on the idea of rebirth, which the director connects to the long tradition of Persian Sufi verse' - Variety

'The unflinching main performance by Melika Foroutan is worth the price of admission alone.' - cineuropa

'Little by little, the story unveils yet another side of a complex woman, who is well worth getting to know.' - cineuropa
