Crossroads (AKA Taghato, 2006), Iranian writer-director Abol Hasan Davoudi's ensemble drama of intersecting lives, examines the cat's cradle of aftereffects that follow a massive car crash. The story opens on Minou (Fatemeh Motamed Arya) a widowed Persian mother with a teenage son, who feels her control over her boy slipping away gradually as he spends increasing amounts of time with a wealthy and irresponsible male friend. One night, the two boys go joyriding in a car, and then - amid a fit of road rage - plow their vehicle into another, killing both a pregnant woman and a young girl who works as a puppeteer. Davoudi then examines the myriad of lives impacted by the accident, by crisscrossing several related stories.
