Beautiful City - Shahre Ziba - شهر زیبا

Directed by multi-award winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, 'Beautiful City' is a cinematic gem not to be missed. Akbar has just turned eighteen. He has been held in a rehabilitation centre for committing murder at the age of sixteen when he was condemned to death. Legally speaking, he had to reach the age of eighteen so that the conviction could be carried out. Now, Akbar is transferred to prison to await the day of his execution. A'la, a friend of Akbar, who himself has undergone imprisonment for burglary, soon after his release tries desperately to gain the consent of Akbar's plaintiff so as to stop the execution. 'Beautiful City' is a simple film about the power of forgiveness.

Akbar was convicted of murdering his girlfriend two years ago and has been serving time in a prison where he must wait to receive capital punishment at the age of 18. To help him, Akbar's sister Firoozeh and his friend A'ala decide to go to the father of the murdered girl. Firoozeh and A'ala are trying desperately to change the death penalty to life imprisonment. When the father learns their decision, he decides to ask the court to speed up the process to Akbar's execution.. Meanwhile, a romantic relationship is formed between A'ala and Firoozeh who has recently got divorced from his addict husband. Abolqasem's daughter is handicapped and in desperate need for treatment. Abolqasem's wife asks her husband earnestly and repeatedly to forgive Akbar . Abolqasem is so opposed to the change of sentence that he decides to sell his house for the blood money. He also fails to sell his house.Finally , Abolqasem consents but asks for blood money from Firoozeh who is incapable of paying it. Abolqasem's wife comes up with the idea that A'ala marries her disabled daughter and offers her idea as a compensation for her son's blood money. Abolqasem's wife is worried that nobody would want to marry her daughter because she is physically disadvantaged. A'ala learns of the mother's decision and leaves it up to Firoozeh to decide. Firoozeh acts indifferent and pretends that she has no feelings for A'ala. Finally , when A'ala comes to Firoozeh, she does not open the door and acts as if she does not have any feelings for him.
