Content descriptions

Summary: Opportunity knocks for an Iranian immigrant working on a road crew in California, a former colonel in the Iranian Air Force under the Shah, when the county offers for sale a seized house at a bargain price. It will serve as a launching pad for his real-estate business which he hopes will restore his family's dignity. When the county discovers it made an error, the alcoholic, drug-addicted woman who owned the house demands its return, but the Iranian refuses. Unfortunately for him, the woman's lover is a policeman who takes the law into his own hands.
