In three intertwining narratives, a peculiar philanthropist, Jalal, runs an unusual contest in a local newspaper offering to donate money to the most worthy applicant. Believing that his commitment to help Tehran’s poor community will ease the pain he feels over the loss of his 5-year-old son, Jalal finds that he might be in over his head. In what becomes a distressing exhibition of the plights and realities of Iranian society, we see the struggles of those Jalal intends to help.
