On the Way to Zayandeh Rood
Mehran is a young football player on the way to becoming a star. He has just been announced as one of the players on the national team and has gone to the city of Isfahan to negotiate with a new club. When his name is removed from the list of Iran's national football team, he gets furious. While driving frantically, he crashes his car and argues with the other driver. He winds up striking the young man in the head and killing him. Mehran goes to jail with his life on the line. His mother is desperately running around doing everything she can think of to get the consent of the victim’s family to have her son released. But the victim’s father is a bitter old man who seems to have other plans for Mehran and his mother.
