A drama about low income workers in Iran
22 January 2018 | by mehdiebrahimiiSee all my reviews

This movie is another type of movie which show how difficult is life for low income worker in Iran and how they are challenging the unemployment and other issues in their life. Sade Ma'bar in Persian means a person who block the road and sell some goods. Normally municipal officer control their work and they have some times clash with the seller. The story line is about the life of an officer who work for Tehran municipal and the stories that happen daily in his life. He want to buy a lorry to get rid from this job but his wife is not agree to buy this lorry. Later several other stories will happen and make this movie interesting. I strongly recommend this movie to be watched.
