Lili returns to the run-down small town she had to leave twenty years ago. Now she wants to take revenge on Amir, her former lover, who left her pregnant back then because of the social pressure. Amir is a respected citizen and feels quite safe and untouchable. But the village needs money, and Lili is incredibly rich. With “Majority”, Mohsen Gharaei presents a star-studded Dürrenmatt adaptation that comes across like a Sergio Leone western.

Afterwards: Talk with the filmmaker and actors!
