When Tina, a highly-skilled customs officer with a keen ability to identify smugglers through her senses, crosses paths with Vor, she is surprised to realize that she is unable to properly assess his intentions. This moment of confusion paves the path for Tina’s brash journey into self-discovery as she gradually becomes more intrigued by Val’s enigmatic presence.

Winner of the Uncertain Regard Program at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Ali Abbasi’s bold and cleverly-crafted film beautifully overlaps genres to create a relatable and moving tale.
