The head nurse at a run-down Iranian mental institution finds herself caught between a wife who has been admitted to the hospital in a state of apparent catatonia, and the husband who may or may not be the cause of her breakdown.

Jessica Kiang, Variety
“Chilly but stylish homage to vintage film noir.”
