Mirhashem is a young clergy who has contracted debts in order to buy a small house; his wife does not share his choices and decides to leave. New problems arise when a creditor begins to haunt Mirhashem for cashing a bad check. The young man, in desperation, then tries to scrape together a few pence preaching at an ancient mosque in the province. But his tormentor follows him even there. An unexpected and sincere portrait of the clerics’ life in contemporary Iran.
