A Man of Integrity

A film by Mohammad Rasoulof

Back
Reza, having distanced himself from the urban quagmire, leads a simple life along with his wife and sole son, somewhere in a remote village in Northern Iran.

He spends his days working in his goldfish farm. Nearby, a private company with close links to the government and local authorities, has taken control of nearly every aspect of the regional life.

Its shareholders, accumulating wealth, power and economic rents, have been pushing local farmers and small owners to dilapidate their belongings, farms and estates, to the benefit of the Company’s influential network and its monopoly.

It is under their pressure that many villagers have themselves become local rings of the larger network of corruption.
