Directed by Hamid Salimian and produced by Mohammad-Sadeq Azin, a synopsis for the movie reads “Issa needs to find a way to save Ida; so he goes through a lot of adventures…”
The Farsi narration on a trailer for the film says: “Once my mom and dad wished to have me, but I was afraid to be born. To help me become brave, God showed me a star and said ‘it will protect you at nights.’ Still, I was worried and thought what may happen if I lose my star.
God said 'if you lose your star you can make a wish to find it’. But, Santa Claus said he could only let one of my wishes to come true. So, I wished for a doll. I think the world is a beautiful place. It is like a lost heaven. Do you like to watch my story in a film?”
