Leilah and Kaveh are an urbane couple from Tehran driving their Lexus through mountainous countryside giving away bags of money. This turns out to be not so easy, but fascinating.  The people they meet are proud, wary, or indifferent. 

Things get stranger.  What's going on?

You can get ready for the movie by watching the trailer.
