In a mysterious stadium covered by a strange fog, a murder is committed. While a re-enactment is organized by the police, the murderer and his accomplices prepare another assassination. But little by little everyone seems caught in an infernal time loop.
After Fish & Cat, Shahram Mokri uses the same directing system (the movie is just one sequence shot). Far from being a simple trick, this incredibly well mastered device gets us to lose our bearings and leads us into an unsettling nightmare, reminiscent of Shane Carruth's c0lever Primer. One of the Festival's most striking films.
