Reza leads a simple life with his wife and son in northern Iran. He puts all his energy into the family business: a goldfish farm. But he begins to feel the growing power of a rapacious private enterprise that forces him to give up his land. "An uncompromising drama from one of Iran's most outspoken directors." (The Hollywood Reporter) "A satisfyingly gritty addition to Iran's tradition of humanist cinema." (Screen International) "'A Man of Integrity' is a tense, enraging drama about corruption and injustice, set in a small village. Rasoulof's fine screenplay resembles a classic tragedy as he examines what defines a human being in a society that has lost its moral centre." (Variety)
