Mohammed Gorjestani's haunting, slightly mystical fable The Shade concerns the events that befall Nima, a young woman driving along dusty summer roads two hours from Tehran. While clad in formal wear, she blows out a tire, and is seemingly stranded, but encounters a local girl with a ticket for a bus that is departing for Tehran, around 5km away. The girl offers Nima her ticket for the current bus, lends her an umbrella, and offers to take the next morning's bus herself. Nima accepts. Several days later, Nima returns to give the umbrella back, but learns that the morning bus crashed into a hillside, killing all of its passengers.
