The Song of Sparrows
Chasing dreams. Finding hope.
Now, how to kill an ostrich...
A simple man works on an ostrich farm, until he is blamed for a missing ostrich. He journeys to the city to help his eldest daughter, and finds himself with a new job: that of driving people around. However, this constant exposure to wealth and possessions begins to change him in ways that his family do not approve of, and they try to find a way to remind him of his values in life. In Persian with English subtitles.
