A dispute in the front garden of a typical “villa” in northern Iran: Parisa, who has travelled from Tehran with her brother, demands her dowry back from Hamid, her ex-husband. Hamid, however, wants to be with her again, despite his second wife Azadeh. Azadeh, in turn, plans a construction project with Bijan – Hamid’s cousin and owner of the villa. And that is just the beginning …
“Mangi” runs through the same short period of time again and again, but the camera focuses on a different character each time, and so the fog of relationships between the young Iranians gradually clears during this morning. An astonishing debut by Rasoul Kahani, brother of the well-known filmmaker Mohammadreza Kahani.
