GERMAN PREMIERE

Fresh walnuts are irresistibly delicious! Soheil’s and Vali’s first act as new friends is to steal nuts from the aunt. During the loud and colourful wedding hustle and bustle in Soheil’s mother’s Iranian home village, this is not even noticeable. But a bad conscience is not far away: Soheil is terribly afraid to get black hands from the guilt, as one believes in the village. And why didn’t Soheil’s father travel with him? Something is wrong with his parents. Then, in the silvery light of a lunar eclipse, everything becomes more acute all at once. (WB)
