Elements of mystery enhance this somber Iranian drama by Maziar Miri. A simple, conscientious welder loses his job on a railroad project after being called back home; his mentally ill spouse has gone missing, but when he tries to learn her whereabouts, those close to her either lie or hide from him. His encounters with the police and a morgue attendant show how his rights are limited by Islamic strictures, though the true cause of his family misfortunes is gossip, not religion. In Farsi with subtitles. 71 min.
