With his girlfriend, he hatches a scheme to find the money needed, but things don’t work out as planned. He finds himself hailed mistakenly as a Good Samaritan and hero, confronting him with a moral dilemma that proves too difficult to resolve.

This acclaimed and award-winning drama by Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi is full of surprises and delivers powerful performances from its lead actors.
