Before starting my career as a director, I was fond of being a taxi driver. I tried it for a while and found it quite fascinating, as I met people who always had something to talk about. As taxis in Iran are centers for sharing ideas about political and social issues, you hear real stories directly from a reliable source.
In this documentary, I drovea taxi in the southern city of Ahwaz, my real hometownto present an image of the society and its paradoxes which have rarely been seen.
To me, all the people and words turned my taxi into a small box in which real stories, expectations, and pains were expressed freely without any self-censorship.
