Gold and Copper

While his wife, Zahra (Negar Javaherian), cares for their children and supports the family by weaving rugs, Seyed Reza (Behrouz Shoeibi) studies the Koran in pursuit of becoming a mullah. But, when Zahra is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Seyed must take on her responsibilities. Seyed is scorned by the male-driven society of Iran for doing so-called women's work, but he finds comfort in prayer. As he weaves long into the night, his religious studies take on a stronger personal relevance.
