Enjoyably absurd comedy about a young screenplay writer, Hasan, who can only catch a break in one place - his dreams. Unsuccessful in his writing ambitions, and unsuccessful in his romantic advances towards Mahshid, Hasan begins to live out his fantasies though his writing. A story-within-a-story then unfolds to great effect as Hasan describes the plot of a film to his producer, and the luckless writer turns into a classic action hero. Expect to laugh as a plot unfolds that is just as fantastical as Hasan's real life is ordinary. Written by IMVBox.com
