The plot:
The movie tells the story of Marjani, a young girl during the Islamic Revolution in Iran. It shows how people's hopes were dashed as the fundamentalists took power, forced the veil on women and imprisoned thousands. It also tells the story of this small girl who is growing up and is experiencing life from a really special perspective...

Definitely worth watching!
