Introducing

“Like Iranian master Asghar Farhadi (“A Separation”), Roustaee blends the best of Eastern and Western cinematic traditions. The result — a stunning Iranian-style riff on “The French Connection” — is a run-and-gun, Hollywood-caliber cop movie grounded by a clear-eyed assessment of how Tehran’s system works, and all the ways in which it doesn’t.” Variety

Synopsis

The police are after a drug lord named Naser Khakzad, but when they finally manage to catch him, he tries whatever he can think of to escape and save his family.
