‘That Night’s Train’ narrates the story of a little girl who meets a female writer when she was on a train. The writer promises to call and visit her later.
The promise, in the writer’s mind, is just a theme for her new story, thus embarking on a merge of fantasy with reality.
Helped by her father and some other people, the girl attempts to overcome her concerns and this leads to amazing adventures.
Siamak Safari, Maryam Boubani, and Bahram Shakeri star in the film.
The JIFF is held annually in Jaipur, India, since 2009. The festival is conducted by the Jaipur International Film Festival Trust.
