'Poetic and beautiful - an extraordinary tale.'

A school window is broken. The children can't concentrate and the rain pours in. This is the story of the journey of a boy (Hadi Alipour) carrying a pane of glass across the countryside in a howling gale. He won't be allowed back into class until he mends it. Will he succeed? Writer Abbas Kiarostami and director Mohammad-Ali Talebi have taken this simple tale and transposed it into a poetic and beautiful film with Farhad Saba's cinematography capturing the perilous journey often from a distant shot.

A simple and quite extraordinary movie. It plays as part of the 'Cinema of Childhood' programme.
