Leila Hatami (A Separation) gives a tour-de-force performance as an ambitious hustler navigating Tehran’s complicated subculture. Solitary and determined, she is involved in everything from smuggling refugees to brokering million-dollar land sales, somehow managing to dodge the local police. The heroine lives alone in a huge empty apartment, where she receives instructions on flash drives delivered in pizza boxes. Briefly distracted by the attention of an attractive motorcycle-riding musician, she summons her focus to resume her nefarious activities until a trusted confidant betrays her.
