7 million people live in Teheran today, on an area of 716.9 square kilometres. Two farmers who work at the meat market must goad a cow from the city’s south to the north through a jungle of streets, alleys, bridges, underpasses and crossroads. On foot. Their jobs and their futures depend on it. A unique trip that portrays the contrast between the metropolis’ south and its north, between the country life and urbanity, all the while displaying a secure sense for dramatic resolve.
