Sent to pick up his sister's shoes from the repair shop, a young boy loses them on the way home, then begs his sister not to tell their father, who can't afford another pair. The kids' sense of pride and duty and their devotion to each other dictate that they try to manage without asking their parents or other adults for help, so they take turns wearing the boy's sneakers, which are too big for the girl—a complicated plan that requires each child to run furiously through the streets of Tehran every day to avoid being late for class. One problem leads to another, but because the children's points of view are so powerfully rendered, the plot of this elegant and lightly magical-realist 1997 drama never seems merely coincidental. Written and directed by Majid Majidi. In Farsi with subtitles.
