problems in Tehran in the first few years
after the revolution. The film shows the
fierce everyday confrontations between
landlords and tenants who can no longer pay

criticize the law of landlord and tenant
passed before the revolution. The film is
outstanding for its accurate reflection of
social reality. It publicizes private misery
and thus breaks with social tradition, which
forbids discussion of personal problems.
