During a period in his career focused on children and their deceptively complicated lives, Kiarostami pivots his camera to the lives of a married couple. The husband is woefully beset with problems, seemingly everywhere he looks. As a tax collector, he's already burdened with unenviable tasks and responsibilities. But to this, he must add accusations that he's receiving bribes. Even worse, at home his wife -- who's rarely seen in the same frame with her husband -- is considering suicide.
