Directed by Hossein Mirza-Mohammadi, ‘Akam’ narrates the story of a young boy who lives in a border village in Iran’s Kordestan Province.
The boy, whose name is Akam, is assisting his father to hold his sister’s wedding ceremony.
The father sends Akam out of the village to bring brick to fix the main pool of the village, but when he comes back he finds all people dead except one.
Only his mother has remained alive because she is deaf; and she has no idea what happened to the rest.
Some of the cast members of the flick are Mahan Babaee, Raman Amani, Ayda Mahmoudian and Mansour Naderi.
