Children of Heaven

  • Losing my shoes burst my bubble.

A young boy loses his sister's only pair of shoes. To prevent their parents from finding out, they agree to share his pair of shoes, but the holes in this plan soon become apparent. So plan B has the boy trying to get his sister another pair of shoes by winning an athletic race. The storyline is merely a cover for some social commentary and exposés on contemporary Iranian life.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: A sweet if rather simple story. Quite weird to see the meshing of Western and Islamic lifestyles.

Ali Zahra: Good and realistic.

Colleen Keeler: This movie had a great message for all to learn from and I would highly recommend to any and all.
