The cast includes Negar Abedi, Shadi Karamroudi, Yazdan Kokabi-Saba. The film has been screened at the Cinéfondation in the 71th Cannes Film Festival in France, ISNA reported on its Persian website. Another movie “La Vallée Heureuse,” shot in Iran by Swiss director Fisnik Maxhuni, is also selected for the festival.   Set in the remote areas near the Caspian Sea in northern Iran, it narrates the story of a young boy searching for a mythical stone buried in the Caspian Sea. The stone is presumably the key to eternal happiness, and on his journey the boy comes across people who are like him, searching for the stone.
