Written by Nima Javidi and jointly produced by Majidi and Amir Banan, the social drama focuses on labor kids.
Popular stars appearing in the flick are Javad Ezzati, Ali Nasiriyan and Tannaz Tabatabaee.
Majidi is one of Iran’s prominent filmmakers. His movie ‘Children of Heaven’ was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in the late 1990s.
