Alireza Davodnezhad's lively and entertaining Iranian film pokes fun at both TV documentaries and melodramatic family feuds. A film crew is shooting a documentary about Reza's crazy family; the young man speaks privately to the camera, declaring his love for a neighbor, but their relatives try to separate them. The endless shouting matches build up a hysterical rhythm that should be familiar to anyone from a fighting family, a rhythm that comes to dominate after the substance of the argument is forgotten.
