The widowed father of blind young Mohammad picks him up from school for the summer break, and takes him back to their beautiful mountainous village. But no sooner are they home and the father wants to off-load the boy onto a blind carpenter. The father reckons having a blind son will ruin his own chances of marrying into an upmarket Islamic family. The story really is secondary - it's as an essay on the sounds and sights of nature that Majidi's film hits home.
