Iranian movie ‘Douch’ is slated to be screened at Mumbai International Film Festival in India.
Directed by Amir Mashhadi-Abbas, the feature will vie at the 21st edition of the Indian event.
‘Douch’ tells the story of a 10-year-old boy, Gholamreza, who is looking for money to trade his old bicycle.
During his pursuit, he comes upon a contest that promises enough money for a new bicycle if he can manage to teach an illiterate person in the village how to read and write.
Gholamreza decides to take part in the contest, and his pupil is a grouchy 90-year-old woman with really poor eyesight and hearing, who does not want to learn anything.
