In this "bracing social-satire-cum-slapstick-comedy from Iran" (Motion Picture Guide), the landlord of a new apartment building in a suburb of Tehran dies, leaving the ownership of the building up for grabs under Iran's "heir-uncertain" law. The apartment manager transfers the title of the building to his name and tries to evacuate the tenants, but they won't budge. The manager then refuses to make any repairs on the building. When the tenants take the matter into their own hands, their world literally comes crashing down on them. "A fresh breeze from Iran" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times). Farsi with English subtitles.
