Afghanistan wartime drama based on director Atiq Rahimi’s Prix Goncourt-winning novel. A partly allegorical tale, The Patience Stone follows a Muslim wife (Golshifteh Farahani) tending to her formerly abusive soldier husband who now lies comatose after being shot at war. With him in her care, she is able to speak to him for the first time without fear of censorship.
