Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) picks up another well-earned Oscar® for this impeccably plotted, deeply suspenseful and brilliantly acted drama. Forced to move out of their apartment due to construction, Ranaa and Emad rent a new place from one of their fellow performers on a production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. Their peaceful life falls into discord and turmoil when a client of the previous tenant arrives one evening, and the aftermath is a storm of vengeance and simmering, unspoken feelings.
