Description

No good deed goes unpunished. When Rahim (Amir Jadidi) tries to return treasure instead of selling it to free himself from debtor's prison, he is initially hailed a hero. Then questions are asked and all hell breaks loose. As the lines between guilt and innocence blur, we are left wondering about the true price of honor. Writer-director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) works with ironic, humane and agonizing precision as he exposes every fault line of contemporary Iranian society.
