Trama: Lateef è un giovane manovale iraniano emigrato dalla campagna in città per lavorare in un cantiere dove è stato assunto con la mansione di cuoco. Il capocantiere, un uomo burbero ma generoso assume anche lavoratori afgani clandestini e deve far fronte alle frequenti visite degli ispettori del lavoro che controllano la regolarità delle assunzioni. Quando Memar, un afgano, cadendo da un'impalcatura si rompe una gamba, il capocantiere accetta di assumere al suo posto Baran, il figlio adolescente dell'uomo Baran, tuttavia, è gracile e non ha esperienza della vita di cantiere e così dopo un paio di giorni viene destinato alle cucine al posto di Lateef che, da quel momento diventa suo nemico giurato. Tutti sono molto soddisfatti della nuova gestione della cucina e Lateef, che adesso lavora come manovale, si vendica di Baran facendogli dei dispetti. Un giorno, tuttavia, è proprio Lateef a scoprire il segreto della bravura di Baran: egli in realtà è una ragazza. Innamoratosi di Baran, Lateef si mette nei guai per evitare che la ragazza venga scoperta dagli ispettori del lavoro: fermato dalla polizia in seguito a una colluttazione, appena scarcerato tenta di rintracciare Baran in un villaggio afgano, ma invano. Da Barmak, uno degli operai del cantiere, viene a sapere che la ragazza lavora presso un fiume alla costruzione di una diga: Lateef la osserva di lontano ma non le si avvicina. Deciso ad aiutare Baran, che il realtà si chiama Rahmat, si fa consegnare un anno di stipendio arretrato e lo consegna a Barmak perché lo dia al padre di Rahmat. Quando dopo alcuni giorni ha l'occasione di incontrare di persona Memar, questi gli dice di aver lasciato che Barmak tornasse in Afghanistan col denaro perché molto più bisognoso e che di lì a poco lui stesso e Rahmat faranno ritorno in patria a causa delle precarie condizioni in cui vivono Lateef sarà costretto a vendere la propria carta d'identità, indispensabile per poter lavorare, al fine di consegnare a Rahmat e Memar del denaro con cui tornare in Afghanistan

After the end of term at a school at the Institute for the Blind in Teheran, Mohammed, an eight year old blind boy, and his father make the long journey on foot and horseback back to their village in the northern highlands of Iran. Though Mohammed quickly settles back into his idyllic life in the country with his two sisters and his grandmother, his widower father, who wants to remarry, decides to send him to work for a blind carpenter far from home. The film starts with a child's perception of the world and expands its vision to encompass the emotional complexities of the adult world. Dividing the focus evenly between Mohammed and his father it provides insight into wider social and cultural issues at play which resonate deeply through the caustic comments of the boy's grandmother. While the soundtrack's constantly shifting chorus of birds, insects, wind and rain draws attention to the sounds Mohammad hears, the film also reveals the beauty he is unable to see

"In den Sommerferien kehrt ein blinder Junge aus der Schule in Teheran in sein abgelegenes Heimatdorf zurück, wo er mit seinen reduzierten Sinnen die ganze Schönheit des Lebens aufsaugt, schließlich aber das tragische Opfer im verzweifelten Lebenskampf seines Vaters wird, der sich für den blinden Sohn schämt und ihn als Strafe Gottes empfindet. Eine märchenhafte Fabel, die einfühlsam und in Bildern von zunehmend archaischer Wucht und Symbolkraft für die Sinne und die Sinneswahrnehmungen der Menschen sensibilisiert und dies mit elementaren Grundfragen der menschlichen Existenz verbindet.
