Made by Iranian filmmaking master Majid Majidi, the movie tells the story of four young friends.
They work quite hard to financially support their needy families while they sometimes commit petty crimes to make easy money.
Everything changes, however, when one of them is entrusted to find a hidden treasure underground, but he must first enroll at the Sun (Khorshid) School, a charitable institution that tries to educate street kids and children suffering child labor.
The movie is a depiction of the contrast between the world of children and adults, which is clearly shown by the children and the path they are about to take to become grown-ups.
The film represents the lack of education and repressive attitudes that deprive these children of their childhood.
