A crime drama with the underlying premise that, no matter how improbable, everything is connected in one way or another. Featuring the hilarious and mysterious stories of a motley assortment of characters as their fates and journeys uncomprehendingly intertwine. From two blind robbers planning their latest heist to a suicidal young man who offers to help in their crime. From a police officer hopelessly in love with a cashier to a charmed ring that spells disaster for whoever wears it. Debut director Shahram Mokri weaves together the various narrative threads with storytelling flair. Filled with black humor and plentiful twists and turns, Ashkan, the Charmed Ring and Other Stories is a stunning accomplishment, a latter-day Pulp Fiction.
