Saeed Roustaee’s film on fight against drug trafficking goes on screen at the Supernova section of the Romanian film event.

‘Just 6.5’ tells the story of a veteran narcotics officer, Samad, who is on a mission to find and bring to justice Nasser, the biggest drug lord of the city. After the arrest has been made and Nasser gets his death sentence, Samad starts to wonder, whether his actions are of any good or this is an endless pursuit.
