The last day in the life of Sadegh Hedayat, an Iranian writer in Paris, who studied existential philosophy with Jean-Paul Sartre in the 1940’s and committed suicide in 1951. Projected on three screens that resemble the walls of a room, and also the parallel narratives of Hedayat’s mind, the film recounts through imagery Hedayat’s last day and night.
