When forensic pathologist Dr. Nariman hits a motorbike with his car, he injures the motorcyclist’s 8-year-old son. Although he offers to take the child to a clinic nearby, the father refuses his help and money. The next morning, in the hospital where he works, Dr. Nariman discovers that the little boy has been brought for an autopsy after a suspicious death. Another doctor attributes the death to botulism, but Dr. Nariman suspects the accident might be the true — or at least a contributing — cause. The physician faces an ethical decision: Should he reveal his potential culpability? The New York Times writes: “An absorbing illustration of how minor actions and bad decisions can amplify one another (and have ripple effects of their own), ‘No Date, No Signature’ is a sturdy morality play from the theater-trained Iranian director Vahid Jalilvand.”
