The Pot and the Oak

After several short films, The Pot and the Oak is the first feature film by Iranian director Kiarash Anvari. Borzoo is an unsuccessful playwright, living in a lifeless marriage with Hilda, an actress. When he finds out about his infertility, even the last chance to avert a divorce vanishes. Walking the line between tragedy and comedy, the drama poses the question of how much small lies can change a whole life.
