Description

Ghodrat-Allah Samadi wants to become a member of the Iranian parliament, but he has a reputation for recklessness and taking arbitrary action. His path to success is fraught with obstacles and self-inflicted wrong turns. Deciding his best course of action is negotiating with assorted parties and politicians, none take him seriously until he’s connected to a single, notorious incident.

Award-winning director Kamal Tabrizi's Sly is a fast-paced political satire that showcases the comedic talents of prolific Iranian actor Hamed Behdad.
