THE STORY

The film tells the story of a Syrian child who lost sight of a mortar shell when he was playing with his friends. The child imprisons himself at home while the mother tries in various ways to free him. In an innovative way, with the help of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood who still remain in this war torn town.

Writer & Director: Ahmad Zayeri (Iran); DOP:Mohamad Rahim
