Rahim is in prison for failing to repay a debt. During his two-day leave, he happens to do a good deed that will briefly launch him among the stars of social media. Thanks to his fifteen minutes of fame, he will try to persuade his creditor to withdraw the claim. But hope is short-lived and life does not always go to plan. The latest film by two-time Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi (The Past – ZFF 2013; A Separation; The Salesman), is a gripping drama about the fate of an individual in a society that likes to put people on a pedestal, but does not believe its own stories.
