The Warden

Sorkhpoust

1960s, in Shah-era Iran. The curtain rises in an isolated prison, scheduled for demolition, where soon-to-be-promoted major Jahed is quivering with pride. His pompous authority though is about to slip away when he finds out that a death-row prisoner has vanished into thin air. As a paradoxical manhunt sets off, Jahed is joined by an attractive female social worker, with whom they are working at cross-purposes: she is convinced that the impoverished escapee has been framed. A clock-ticking thriller set in the Kafkaesque labyrinth of an empty prison, where absolute power is demystified to the point of collapse.
