Iran/2008/35mm/colour/113’/Persian

12-year-old Ali who lost his mother when he was two, is being raised by his surgeon father and grandfather. Though they try their best to look after him and try to offer comfort, Ali always want to see his deceased mother. While helping out in his father’s hospital pharmacy, Ali becomes aware of a strange interloper named Maleki who frequently visits the terminally ill patients. Ali comes to realize that Maleki is actually the spirit of death, who is there to guide the hopelessly ill to their place in the next world. Ali turns to maleki and asks him if he could do something special and allow him to be reunited with his mother.

Genre-juggling script blends metaphysical fantasy about the afterlife, Sturm und Drang medical drama and pedagogical kid’s pic to overstate the moral that death comes to all, so live bravely and don’t fear it.
