A lovely movie whose memories make me smile :) The main characters are a young boy Ali and his little sister Zahra who live in a poor part of Tehran. Ali loses Zahra's shoes. The two of them decide to keep it a secret and a series of events unfolds. The storyline is heartwarming.
The movie was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1998, losing to the Italian film Life is Beautiful.
