Synopsis

A man named Jalal publishes an unusual advertisement in one of Tehran’s morning papers to donate $10,000 to a needy person. The news gathers a large group of people. At the end of the day, he receives many application forms, and he eventually decides to choose one by chance. Those who have applied insist that what’s been advertised is the only solution to their problem. The police take charge of the situation by calming the people and having them dispersed. However, two women do not give up: Setareh, a 19-year-old pregnant woman, and Leila, Jalal’s ex-fiancée…


A well-meaning philanthropist places an advert pledging to give away 30 million tomans to someone in need, but the generous act causes chaos among the crowds that arrive to claim the gift. ‘Wednesday, May 9’ is broken up into three separate narratives: a woman who needs the money for a life-changing operation for her disabled husband, a pregnant woman who needs the money to get her innocent husband out of jail and the third is that of the misguided benefactor himself. This Venice award-winning, debut feature from director Vahid Jalilvand highlights the plight of the poor in Iran and how generosity teamed with faulty judgement can worsen the situation.
