“Thousands of years ago, Yunus (Jonah) became doubtful and slipped. The instant his story was about to reach its pinnacle, the fish’s gut begins Jonah’s story. Now, a thousand years later, Zhaleh becomes doubtful and slips and when her story is about to finish at its highest”, a short synopsis of the film reads.
Among the film crew include screenwriter Amir Athar Soheili, Cinemogragapher Ali Azimizadeh and assistant director Hesam Samerizadeh.
KIFF is one of the oldest and most valid festivals in India. The fest aims at creating an opportunity for a better understanding of international films and to promote motion picture art and industry.
