In this provocative film from the new Iranian cinema, seminary student Seyyed Hassan is preparing to rise to the status of cleric when his vestments are stolen by a young thief. Seyyed tracks the boy to a poor and distant suburb where he's treated to an eye-opening view of the gulf between religious teachings and harsh, everyday life. Winner of the Grand Prize for Feature at the 2001 Critics Week at Cannes.
