This is a 19.5" x 27.5" Iranian poster for the 1988 Sirus Alvand film Cargo written by Gholamreza Moosavi and starring Jahangir Almasi. Plot summary: Ali Danesh, an archaeologist with the Ministry of Culture and Art, was trying to dig up a 3000-year-old collection of tremendous value. Danesh informed some newspaper journalists about the discovery. The heads of the ministry, who wanted to seize the collection, reprimanded Danesh for informing the newspapers and they took steps with some foreigners to sell the collection. On the other hand General Azadi, who was collecting ancient artifacts for his personal museum and a broker named Nosrat were knocking themselves out to acquire the collection. Azadi, who had more influence than others, took control the collection despite the efforts of Danesh, and Nosrat absconded with it to get it into General Azadi's hands with a new transaction. The general and Nosrat were making a deal but before reaching the site for the talks Nosrat told his mother where the collection was located so she could make it available to Ali Danesh in case of danger. Danesh obtained some of the items discovered and buried them to keep them out of the hands of Azadi and the brokers. Azadi, who still wanted to get the collection, knocked out Danesh and was killed by Nosrat.
