A single moment in time changes the lives of two Iranian men.
The forensic pathologist Dr Nariman has a car accident with a motorcyclist and injures his 8-year-old son. He offers to take the child to a clinic nearby, but the father refuses his help and money. Few days after, in the hospital where he works, Dr Nariman finds out that the little boy has been brought for an autopsy after a suspicious death. Nariman’s personal and professional worlds begin to close in around him. Dr Nariman is facing a dilemma: is he responsible for the child’s death due to the car accident or the child died of food poisoning according to other doctors’ diagnosis?
This superbly acted drama is about much more than medical forensics: Jalilvand and co-writer Ali Zarnegar place a microscope on class conflict in contemporary Iran and the relationship between modern and traditional justice.
