This historical film taken from the book The Blind Owl (1936; Persian: Boof-e koor) is Sadegh Hedayat's magnum opus and a major literary work of 20th-century Iran.

The summary of this movie is as follows:

There are some wounds in life, as if they are like leprosy which scratches the spirit slowly.

And the only it's remedy is oblivion by wine and hypnotism by the wizard and the fixes

But sorry the effectiveness of these materials are temporary, and instead of tranquility, so passing time increases it's pain.
