A Hero

Asghar FARHADI Iran, France 127 Min PG Southeast Asian Premiere

A moral gesture catapults a debt-ridden man into a public arena that brings unexpected fame but also a tragic downfall.

A divorced father serving jail time due to his failure to pay a debt, Rahim takes a two-day leave with great delight. Not only will he get to meet his family and lover, but he also has high hopes of leaving prison thanks to a bag of gold coins that his girlfriend has found. When the coins prove insufficient to negotiate a payment term with his creditor, Rahim decides to find the owner to return them. Little does he expect the ensuing fanfare that earns him widespread respect and a job promise.
