MARDI KE GILASS HAYASH RE KHORD – A MAN WHO ATE HIS CHERRIES

Reza’s wife Zari finally wants to get divorced. He is sterile and broke and she is tired of it. When Reza comes home from work in the factory one evening she stands in front of him with packed bags and the divorce papers. Traditionally he has to refund her dowry after the split, but he doesn’t have the money anymore. Fortunately he can persuade her to quit the outstanding claim after a single payment of 25 million toman. While Reza tries to find money a workmate loses fingers in an accident and receives a generous compensation. That gives Reza an idea.
