The 2017 Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Film. Forced to leave their collapsing house, Ranaa (Taraneh Alidoosti) and Emad (Shahab Hosseini), an Iranian couple who happen to be performers rehearsing for Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" rent a new apartment from one of their fellow performers. Unaware of the fact that the previous tenant had been a woman of ill repute having many clients, they settle down. By a nasty turn of events one of the clients pays a visit to the apartment one night while Ranaa is alone at home taking a bath and the aftermath turns the peaceful life of the couple upside down.
