Somewhere in the old provincial city of Shiraz in Iran lives Negahdar Jamali, a pleasant eccentric who has made cowboy films for 35 years. They are purely amateur, to be sure. but Jamali's unbridled enthusiasm for his hobby convinces all his relatives and friends to get in front of the camera. This documentary provides an appealing picture not only of a Persian, amateur version of John Ford, but also of everyday life in the ancient city.
