Director: Babak Anvari

Starring: Narges Rashidi, Avin Manshadi, Bobby Naderi

In 1988 Tehran, Shideh’s attempts to rejoin medical school are thwarted as a consequence of her politically active history. Her husband is sent off to serve in the Iran-Iraq War while Iraqi air raids draw perilously close to their own apartment. As neighbours and friends flee from a city in chaos she is left alone with her daughter Dorsa who becomes increasingly ill and seemingly disturbed. Shideh initially dismisses her tantrums over a missing doll but is soon terrified they’ve been targeted by a djinn - a malevolent spirit that steals from those it seeks to possess.
