Rahim is serving a prison sentence because of a misfortune: after borrowing money for a business deal, his partner ran away, leaving him in penury and with no means to pay off the debt. When he has a two-day leave to visit his family, he decides to convince the man he owes money to drop the charges. But things go terribly wrong. A signature dramatic story by Iranian Asghar Farhadi, the director of "A Separation" (2011) and "The Salesman" (2016), both winners of the Oscar for Best International Film. In competition at the Cannes Film Festival, "A Hero" received the Grand Prix, the festival's second most important award, after the Palme d'Or.
