Based on the best-selling novel by Afghan-born Atiq Rahimi (Winner of France’s prestigious Prix Goncourt) The Patience Stone is a bold, powerful and ultimately uplifting story of one woman’s resolve to break free from silence and oppression, featuring a breath-taking performance from Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (Asghar Farhadi’s About Elly, Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies).


In a country torn apart by a war, in Afghanistan or elsewhere, a beautiful young woman is left alone to care for her wounded husband who has been in a coma for the past two weeks. With no improvement in his condition, food and water in short supply and a war raging around her, she begins a heartfelt monologue in the hope that he will awaken and recover.
