    • Synopsis
    • The mother has two dear guests, a newly wed couple arriving to her house for the first time. The father, who is a film buff and a movie theater projectionist, comes home with no money and declares that the theater has been closed down. The mother, who has a heart condition, is anxious because their financial situation won't allow her to receive her guests properly and serve them in a traditional Iranian way. The neighbors, in this old-fashioned housing complex, who are in even worse financial stress, wholeheartedly come to her rescue and help create a wonderful dinner feast, defying even death.
