In this documentary, Iranian schoolboys complain about the amount of homework they have to do. This would not seem to be a particularly harsh criticism of the Iranian school system, but evidently the nation's educational authorities thought otherwise, and held up the film's release. Also highlighted are shots of kids larking around a bit during obligatory prayer sessions. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
