Children of Heaven

Ali (Amir Farrokh Hashemian) loses his sister, Zahra's (Bahare Seddiqi) shoes right after he gets them repaired. Not wanting to pressure their poor and hardworking father, they decide to share Ali's sneakers in a kind of relay. Zahra will wear them to school in the morning and rush back in time with them for Ali to go to school. A poignant children's tale that is shorn of the expected melodrama but is left with right amount of "cuteness" and emotion.
