In the title compound, C20H14N4O2, mol-ecules are linked into chains by N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, but the cyano group does not participate in the supra-molecular aggregation. The crystal structure of the compound indicates the presence of a double bond with Z geometry, connecting the imidazolidine and indole units. The dihedral angle between the imidazole and benzene ring planes is 62.45 (4)°.
