This debut road movie from Iranian director Panah Panahi went down a storm at Cannes and landed the Best Film Award at BFI London Film Festival.

Dad (Hassan Madjooni) sits moodily in the back seat of the family car, nursing his broken leg, while Mum (Pantea Panahiha) drives and tries to laugh when she’s not holding back tears. An energetic youngster (Rayan Sarlak, in a star-making performance) keeps exploding into song and scrambling around the car. All are fussing over their sick dog and getting on each others’ nerves; only the mysterious older brother (Amin Simiar) is quiet. They’re on a road trip across a rugged, often extremely beautiful landscape – but where are they headed?
