Bab’Aziz lives as a dervish, a religious ascetic who wanders the desert in search of his fellow dervishes, who reunite every 30 years.  To distract his young granddaughter, Ishtar, from the monotony of their journey and the dangers of the desert, he tells elaborate myths and stories.  Along the way, they meet other struggling travelers who share their own tales.  Beautifully filmed in the deserts of Iran, Bab’Aziz insightfully explores themes of introspection and identity.
