About the Film

At a crossroads in his life, a middle-aged son journeys from Tehran to Prague to trace his father’s path through the tumultuous history of his own times only to find himself even more unmoored in the present. Rouzbeh finds himself on a quest to better understand his father, a communist intellectual who started a new life in Eastern Europe in the wake of the 1953 coup. Every clue he tracks down, however, deepens the mystery surrounding the man he thought he knew.
