Il "produttore artistico" Alain Brigand ha dato mandato a undici registi di impegnarsi in un cortometraggio di 11 minuti 9 secondi e un decimo che ricordasse, a un anno di distanza, la strage di Manhattan. Il film è stato presentato a Venezia, dove ha suscitato polemiche. Nei titoli viene detto che ciascun autore si è espresso liberamente e secondo la propria storia. Il primo "corto" è di Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran). Il quadro è quello dei tre milioni di afgani profughi in Iran. Una giovane insegnante cerca di far osservare un minuto di silenzio per le vittime delle torri. I bambini commentano alla loro maniera la morte di tanti innocenti. (Mymovies)

Trama: Un vecchio uomo, insieme con la moglie cieca, ha sempre tenuto segregate in casa le due figlie dodicenni, Massoumeh e Zahra, per paura dei pericoli che potrebbero correre per strada. Data la situazione particolare, i vicini di casa decidono, tramite una petizione, di chiamare l'assistente sociale, che interviene in una situazione diventata ormai drammatica. Le due bambine hanno evidenti problemi mentali, relazionali, linguistici. Sono abituate a vivere dentro casa e non hanno coscienza di ciò che sta loro intorno. Quando l'assistente obbliga le bambine a uscire, il padre e soprattutto la madre cercano di non arrendersi ai voleri della pubblica autorità. Tuttavia le due piccole escono lo stesso e vanno in giro per i vicoli vicini. Mille sono le piccole cose che possono fare all'aria aperta: prendere i gelati di un ragazzino, accarezzare una capra legata in un cortile, seguire un altro fanciullo con una mela, incontrare due coetanee e andare a giocare con loro in un parco o a vedere un banchetto di orologi. Sull'altro versante, l'assistente, viste le continue proteste dei due coniugi, li rinchiude in casa, per far capire loro cosa si prova a restare imprigionati. L'assistente dà anche al vecchio uomo una sega per far sì che si possa liberare e, nello stesso tempo, rimuovere le sbarre che vietavano l'uscita alle ragazzine. Al ritorno di Massoumeh e Zahra, l'uomo è riuscito a segare una sbarra e con l'aiuto delle figlie riesce a uscire. Mentre la moglie cieca rimane in casa, padre e figlie vanno al negozio di orologi. Rimasta sola, la donna esce tentennante di casa e s'imbatte nella mela tenuta in mano da un ragazzino
