Breakfast with Dinosaurs is focused on a social dimension: living in a megapolis city, Tehran and the different social manifestations of the contemporary Iranian society. The film shows the binary opposition of „inside“ and “outside“ life; The contrast between the inner life inside private homes/empty spaces and the restless fast and crowded awareness of the outer space. It uses the conversations/interviews with the taxi drivers in the city as a link or an intermediate stage between these two entities.(It is very common for private cars to take passengers along the way to be able to survive in Tehran.) These conversations/ true stories are brought into play as a way of „mapping“ the city, based on the life experiences of the chauffeurs.The abstract, performative actions of a female character, poetically expressing deprivation, abandonment, melancholy and the sense of victimhood adds a mysterious third layer to the film.
