    Greetings,

    Please could you translate the following dialogue for me, based on the same Majid Majidi film?

    - Do you have change for 500,000 tomans?
    - 500,000 tomans is change!

    The idea of the man who gives the response is presumably that 500,000 tomans is such a small amount of money that it's not worth changing it as it is small change already. Perhaps he was a rich man, I don't know…..

    All the best, and many thanks,

    Simon
