Director [[Performer~P145142~Majid Majidi~majidmajidi]], whose [[Feature~V158666~Bacheha-Ye Aseman~thechildrenofheaven]]/[[Feature~V158666~Children Of Heaven~thechildrenofheaven]] was the first Iranian film to be nominated for an American Academy Award, returns with another compassionate story of children in need. Mohammad ([[Performer~P268400~Moshen Ramezani~mohsenramezani]]) is a student at a special school for blind children in Tehran; when summer break rolls around, Mohammad is the last student to be picked up by his family. His mother is dead, and his father ([[Performer~P145102~Hossein Mahjub~hosseinmahjoob]]), who earns a meagre wage working in a charcoal producing plant, sometimes considers abandoning the boy. However, father does eventually arrive, and Mohammad spends the summer with his sisters and grandmother at a farm surrounding by dazzling fields of wild flowers. The summer in the country is a joyous experience for Mohammad, until he discovers his father is giving thoughts to re-marrying, and considers his handicapped son to be a stumbling block in his future matrimonial plans. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
