"One of the year’s genuine crowd pleasers" Chicago Tribune
Young Ali has lost his little sister’s newly-mended shoes. Scared to tell their hard-up father, they take it in turns to wear Ali’s plimsolls to school, an arrangement fraught with complications. A solution emerges when their school enters a running competition and the third prize is a pair of trainers. First Iranian film to be Oscar nominated for Best Foreign Film in 1998.
