Two men brought together by fate spend the night in a very special city in this drama from filmmaker Rasoul Sadrameli. Mohsen (Amin Hayayee) is a hard-boiled veteran policeman who has tracked down Parviz (Ezzatollah Entezami), an elderly swindler wanted by the law. With Parviz in handcuffs, Mohsen is preparing to bring the criminal back to the station for booking when they're suddenly caught in a blinding snowstorm. With Parviz shackled to his wrist, Mohsen tries to find shelter and happens upon a humble rooming house where the innkeeper (Khosro Shakibai) gives them a place to wait out the blizzard. As the two struggle to rest, Parviz looks for a chance to honor his mother while in the holy city of Mashhad, though Mohsen is more interested in putting him behind bars. Originally produced for Iranian television, Shab (aka The Night) also made the rounds of international film competitions, including a screening as an official entry at the 2008 Fajr Film Festival.
