Rahim is in prison because of a debt he was unable to repay. During a two-day leave, he tries to convince his creditor to withdraw his complaint against the payment of part of the sum. But things don’t go as planned.

MUBI's take

Few filmmakers can sculpt a moral drama with such unerring precision as Asghar Farhadi (A Separation). Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, A Hero finds the Iranian maestro at his nail-biting best, stacking cultural codes of honor and obligation into a house of cards for a masterclass in suspense.
