A former university professor now living as a goldfish farmer in a Northern Iranian village, Reza quietly tends to his own affairs alongside his wife Hadis, a principal at a local girls’ school, and their young son. After his river-sourced water supply is cut off, Reza’s goldfish begin dying. His attempt to reopen his sluice is met with a violent attack by thuggish local Abbas, a strongman for a shadowy organization known as simply “the company.” Reza refuses to compensate Abbas for a fake injury, or bribe his way out of mounting legal problems, but he quickly discovers the steep price to be paid for holding on to principles in a system where money trumps morality. This is the powerful new film from director/writer Mohammad Rasoulof. – Cedar Sherbert

Arrested in Iran in 2010 with filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Mohammad Rasoulof received a prison sentence and a 20-year ban on filmmaking, though is currently out on bail.
