This is a 27" x 37.5" Iranian poster for the 1988 Rakhshan Banietemad film Canary Yellow written by Bahman Zarrinpour and starring Mehdi Hashemi. Plot summary: A young small-town shoemaker named Nasrollah Madadi [Mehdi Hashemi] sells his share of a cobbler shop to buy a piece of farmland. The owner of the land promised to him lives in Tehran and has sold it to someone else with a fake deed. When Nasrollah realizes the Tehran buyers are now working the land he goes to Tehran with his wife and children to pursue the case and stays at his father's home, but this goes nowhere. His brother-in-law Aqa Kamal, a dealer in second-hand goods, has set another trap for him: the sale of a Peykan automobile named Canary Yellow which has been sold and stolen many times. Nasrollah does not want to go back home. He wants to take a trip in Canary Yellow, but Kamal Aqa opposes this because he is afraid the former owner will see it and complain. They finally steal Canary Yellow from him.
