Storyline

In 1964 in northern Iran a young man named Hojjat Ali Abadi [Jahangir Almasi] working against the Capitulation Law is supposed to go with Rasul [Faramarz Gharibian] from village to village. Hojjat is killed in an attack by agents but before he dies he gives Rasul a satchel with his political leaflets to take to the village of Kalarabad. Rasul, who has been wounded, flees to the forest and takes shelter in a thatched hut belonging to an old man named Shir Ali, [Akbar Zanjanpour] a charcoal maker who was involved decades earlier with Gilani revolutionary Mirza Kuchek Khan Jangali. Shir Ali treats Rasul's injury and feeds him. Road agents want to destroy Shir Ali's hut to build a road because the forest has been nationalized and the government has claimed Shir Ali's hut; they do not trust Shir Ali and are keeping him under surveillance. Shir Ali shelters Rasul and then helps him flee, but he himself is shot by a government soldier while they are running away. Written by John Green
