One night, Hashem finds a kid in the back seat of his taxi. The driver and his girlfriend try to take care of the unwanted kid, but the man insists in getting rid of him as Taji thinks he has to stay with them.


The influence of the “first” Iranian New Wave of the 1960s on contemporary filmmakers like Abbas Kiarostami, Jafar Panahi, and Ana Lily Amirpour is profound, yet these pioneering works have been largely inaccessible in the West. This newly restored classic offers an ideal entry point into this exciting period of film history, when an independent Iranian cinema movement emerged from a fusion of storytelling, poetic images, and documentary. Pre-revolutionary Tehran pulsates with life in Soleyman Minassian’s expressionistic black-and-white widescreen photography for a film that, with shades of Antonioni and a climax as harrowing as it is unforgettable, becomes an allegorical critique of Tehran’s intellectual class: hedonistic, sick-souled, and blind to the looming threat of political repression.
