Winning awards at film festivals in Berlin and India, Modest Reception stars director Mani Haghighi and Taraneh Alidoosti (who starred in About Elly, which screened at the MFAH in 2011) as a couple distributing bags of cash to need people in the surrounding provinces. The film demonstrates how far the impoverished citizens are willing to sell out for a bag of money offered by the wealthy couple from the city.
