About Two Dogs
Iman and Sajjad are two young men struggling with problems typical for 30-year-olds in contemporary Iran: unemployment, depression and lack of self-confidence. Iman is translating Franz Kafka's "Investigations of a Dog" into Farsi and works as a cab driver, too. His passengers are similar to the characters of Kafka's story. Sajjad, Iman's best friend, is very inhibited because of the way he looks and is trying to obtain enough money for surgery. They both have dogs that look very similar to their owners. The dogs, not always welcomed by the families, make the men feel less lonely living in traditional Iranian society.
