SYNOPSIS 
Why would someone give money away? What sort of consolation can that offer? On May 9, Jayal Ashtiyani, a teacher, has offered to provide a significant sum of money to a worthy person in need. His advertisement in the local newspaper has encouraged people to come to his office and make a convincing appeal. But how will he, and the police, deal with the throngs of needy candidates who assemble? How does he decide who’s actually the most worthy? Creating tension at every turn, Wednesday, May 9 draws its audience deep into the tangled web of the predicaments it raises. Stars Niki Karimi.
