Wonderfully entranced!

This film brings into light the suffering of Afghan refugees, the callousness of outsiders to their plight, and the unique insight into one man's inevitable transformation into a selfless human being. I could not pry my eyes away. Often the most beautiful things in life can be surrounded by a barren place. This story moves you into examining the excesses we have in our lives, and the small details others less fortunate than us, would cherish.

Beautifully touching film

This film is lovely, with a simple message - give to others unconditionally. The main character, Lateef, transforms during the course of the movie from a selfish bully into a truly noble individual. This change occurs once he truly begins to understand the suffering of others, in this case displaced Afghans struggling to survive in Iran. Although the movie ends with many unanswered questions, the entire experience is very moving and inspiring.
