Directed by Nima Javidi, the 90-minute film narrates the story of a warden who has big hopes of promotion.
He has recently been assigned a mission to evacuate the prison and move the inmates into another facility.
Should he be able to accomplish his task to the fullest, he will be rewarded.
A prisoner, however, has gone missing which might bring the warden shame and bring down his dreams of promotion.
The movie has gone on screen at some global events, including the Chennai International Film Festival in India, the Hainan International Film Festival in China, the International Film Festival “East & West. Classics and Avant Garde” in Russia, and the 9th International Crime and Punishment Film Festival in Turkey, where it received the special student jury award.
The SMFF presents the best films, documentaries and short films of the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa.
The 2021 edition of the Bulgarian festival is slated for January 15-31.
