"The film is perfectly enjoyable and quite reveals an unknown by depicting the middle class of Iran"
– Christopher Campbell, Cinematical
"Terrific! The real pleasure here is watching the interactions of four good friends."
– Time Out Chicago
"All the characters here are warm, human and convincing, and the film glides easily from the initial tone of light humor to the increasingly painful drama."
– Michael Wilmington, The Chicago Tribune


This film tells the hilarious story of four old friends who, driving back from a failed skiing trip, encounter a strange and enormous rock. The men's frivolous attempt to dislodge the rock gradually disintegrates into a tale of betrayal, defeat and renewed hope. The heroes of the film are doctors, engineers and businessmen in the throes of mid-life crises. Their middleclass problems and the absurd phallic rock venture gives rise to great humor.
