Improvisational acting and handheld digital camerawork make this coming-of-age story feel lighter and looser than many Iranian movies, as does the optimistic conclusion. A teenage boy studies the textile trade in vocational school, helps out at home, pursues sports, plays make-believe, and shows off for the girls. After his mother has another baby and his father's textile factory closes, he grows up in a hurry, but his conflicts with restless fellow students and violent thugs only strengthen his character. There isn't much tension to this drama, which integrates documentary footage of the town and its railroad, but appealing juvenile actors and uplifting moral lessons make for a nice kids' movie. Mohammad-Ebrahim Mo'ayyeri directed. In Farsi with subtitles. 82 min.
