Iran’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2019 Oscars, No Date, No Signature follows forensic pathologist Kaveh Nariman, who is involved in a car accident in which an 8-year-old boy is injured. Dr. Nariman offers to take the child to a nearby clinic, but his father refuses his help and money. The next morning, Dr. Nariman discovers that the little boy has been brought to the hospital where he works for an autopsy after a suspicious death. Dr. Nariman is facing a dilemma: Is he responsible for the child’s death due to the car accident? Or did the child die of food poisoning, as claimed by the other doctors’ report?
