An audacious shocker from Iran.

An obese man uses his deaf, attractive adult son as bait in a con scheme to entrap and blackmail random women in the streets of Tehran. At home, the son devotedly ministers to his ailing father, who responds with tyranny and abuse. A young woman comes between them... Don’t worry about plot; instead, just go with the surreal images and absurdist situations of a dreamlike allegory on patriarchy.
