2016 BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM AWARD winner; Best Debut Director, Best Screenplay, Best supporting actress.
Shideh and her family live amid the chaos of the Iran-Iraq war. Accused of subversion by the post-Revolution government and blacklisted from medical college, she is coming to terms with her new life as a housewife. With Tehran under the constant threat of aerial bombardment, her husband is drafted and sent to the frontlines by the army, leaving Shideh all alone to protect their young daughter, Dorsa.
Soon after he leaves, a missile hits their apartment building and while failing to explode, a neighbour dies under mysterious circumstances and Dorsa's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. Shideh finds herself slowly drawn into the ensuing turmoil. Searching for answers, she learns from a superstitious neighbor that the cursed missile might have brought with it a “djinn” – a malevolent Middle-Eastern spirit that travels on the wind.

Really good film with some genuinely scarery moments - it's a slow burner this film that plays on tension and earyness. Beautifully acted - well worth a watch.
