Our society has experienced dramatic changes in the cultural arenas and social morality issues during the past two decades. The Political conflicts and challenges between the political parties (the Reformists and the Hardliners) led to an ignorance of social morality in particular in the family institution. In fact, challenges in gaining more political power between the political parties and authorities led to a negligence of social morality in the whole society. This article tries to analyze the representation of social morality in Gold and Copper, a film by Homayun Asadian, through a narrative analysis. Gold and Copper is the third part of a famous trilogy (Marmulak and Under the Moonlight are the two others) about the religious life and the Iranian clergies. Gold and copper pays attention to the social morality and acting moral in the real social positions, and criticizes the formal ethical rules that one can find in religious and ethical books. The film penetrates into the life of a young clergyman and his relationships with his wife and other people to depict the real face of morality. He seeks to learn the ethical lessons from an old famous master teaching ethics in a religious school, but he soon finds that one cannot find the real morality in books. Morality rules are simple and one can only find them in everyday situations.
