Lerd (A Man Of Integrity)
A powerful tale of tradition and moral rectitude in the face of creeping commercialism, A Man Of Integrity is the story of Reza, a taciturn and reserved individual, happy to run his goldfish farm and exist peacefully with his wife and small child in the beautiful landscapes of rural northern Iran. But his serenity is shattered when a corrupt local company, with links to the authorities and apparently, every intention of crushing the local population to its will, threatens Reza’s tranquil life. How does he retain his integrity in the face of shameless commercial bullying? ‘A Man Of Integrity’ is an inspiring examination of the resilience of the human spirit, that shows you how.
