Directed by Ali Atshani, the movie is about a middle-aged war veteran, nicknamed Katyusha.
The comedy juxtaposes a rich spoiled young man with a soldier from a poor district.
Khalil, known as Katyusha, is a pious man. He has to spend some days with Arshia, a corny loaded guy. The gap that exists between their social levels and worldviews creates some problems.
“If I want to be successful in my life, I do not have to look at life like you do," a tagline for the flick reads.
