Plot summery A paralyzed man who has lost his legs due to a car accident is now staying at home, buying and selling dollars. He is now expecting a war between Iran and The US in the hope for a soar in the price of his savings in dollar, regardless of how many people would die in the war. The war and the profit he makes by selling his dollars afterwards, would help him make a fortune as well as having a leg operation. And this is just the beginning of the story … P.S. the story goes back to the day at the beginning of the year 2020 when Iran attacked an American military base in Iraq called “al-Asad” as an act of revenge.

Director Statement

A look at capitalism, currency and the dollar, and the imperialism of the new system of the World Bank and the bourgeoisie.

This film is about personal profitability in an unfavorable situation. The price of the dollar is directly related to the lives of the Iranian people. With the news of the Iran-US war and sanctions, the dollar is becoming more expensive.

Meanwhile, some people are now buying and selling dollars The worse the situation and the greater the likelihood of war, the more they think about their own interests and the dollar, because they can get rich.
