From the acclaimed director of A Separation (Oscar, Best Foreign Language Film) and THE Past comes this mystery-thriller, set among a group of Iranian college friends visiting the Caspian Sea for a holiday weekend. Elly, invited as a possible romantic interest for one of the newly single men, disappears from the group without a trace. The festive atmosphere quickly turns frantic as friends accuse one another of responsibility.

As a fan of world cinema I love to learn about other peoples and cultures, even when it makes me uncomfortable. Perhaps especially then. This film certainly did that. The way the story unfolded seemed both familiar and foreign at the same time. I think I'll have to see it again. I empathize with Elly and to a lesser extent Sepideh, although I think her initial intentions were good. I do enjoy Iranian films very much.

Disappointing story. For a group of people who met in university, they are not a bright bunch of people. Characters not well developed.
