This beautiful atmospheric debut feature by award-winning Iranian short film maker Naghi Nemati tracks three conscripts who desert their unit and become lost in the frozen wilderness of Iran s mountainous north.

Iran, 2007 (80 minutes)

Just one day from completing their military training, three conscripts desert their camp and escape into the frozen wilderness of Northern Iran. Travel through this mountainous, snowbound region is dangerous, but "those three" opt for the independence it promises and must now forge their way through an uncertain landscape, with only friendship to see them through. In this austere and mesmerizing debut feature, director Naghi Nemati's attention to the minutiae of human relationships is a quiet and deliberate meditation on the value of responsibility, connection and sacrifice.
