Nazif scrapes a living breaking up metal and selling it to scrap dealers in a village far from Sarajevo. When his partner Senada is discovered to have miscarried and needs an urgent operation, the hospital refuses as she has no insurance card, and Nazif has no means of obtaining the money they are demanding. For the next 10 days he, and the Roma community where they live, must do everything possible to save her life.

CLOSED CURTAIN

The second film made in secret conditions by Jafar Panahi, still under a film-making ban by the Iranian authorites, is a multi-layered Pirandellian drama set in a villa by the sea, where a screenwriter, played by Partovi, has taken refuge with his dog, as dogs are being rounded up as unclean.
