A young boy listens to his parents bickering prior to their angrily running off and possibly dying in a car crash. The boy's aunt and her husband, both deaf, take the boy on a benighted auto trip through Iranian country roads: furiously, but silently, debating in sign language how to handle their charge. That's the set-up for an illuminating road trip which doesn't resolve any of the life-altering questions raised by the story, while seeming to artificially ratchet up the suspense quotient. The acting was flawless, especially the depiction of a deaf couple. However, despite feeling sympathy for the newly orphaned boy, I was curiously unmoved by the film.
