About the film

Director: Reza Jamali
Actors: Salman Abbasi, Nader Mahdilou, Hamdollah Salimi
One-hundred-year-old Aslan, the head of a death squad in his youth, is living with his other single old fellows in a remote village in the northern-west of Iran. Since he came to the village 45 years ago, no man has ever died in the village! Now, most of the population are old and disabled men. All done with their lives; they believe the only way to bring death back to the village is to commit suicide! But it is not as easy as they think, specially that the government has put officers in charge of keeping an eye on them so they don’t kill themselves.
