Synopsis:


Teheran, 1988. The war between Iran and Iraq is violently reaching its end, with constant bombing of the city. While a mother and her daughter struggle to stick close together, an evil presence lurks in their apartment. Imagine a Persian-style The Babadook and you’ll find one of this season’s big surprises that, under the shadow of terror, harbors an intelligent political allegory.
