Still living at home at the age of 50, Parviz (Levon Haftvan) is shocked when his dad kicks him out to make way for his new wife. Emotionally stunted and deeply wounded, Parviz lashes out in vicious, petty ways until he sees a chance to reclaim his rightful place.
Barzegar builds a mounting sense of tension and dread that doesn’t break until film’s final seconds.
