After many attempts she and her brother convince their mother to give them her last bit of money. Between their home and the fish store, Razieh loses the money.. She finds it, but it is temptingly just out of her reach. Written by

You're whining again!
Mom refuses to give me money for the goldfish.
Don't you like ours?
You call these goldfish, you haven't seen the others. It's as though they're dancing when they move their fins. And they've got so many fins.
The shopkeeper said 100 tomans.
100 tomans! You want to pay 100 tomans for a goldfish. You can watch two films with that money. You're nuts.

a girl loses the money to pay for a goldfish and goes on a quest to find it.
I just finished watching this delightful movie about a five-year old Iranian girl who is given money to buy a goldfish but loses it. The film, innocent yet interesting and enthralling takes the viewer along on her journey to find the money so that she can get her fish. She encounters many people along the way, all who try to help her to get back the money. There are many underlying themes throughout the movie as well, but above all, we learn to help each other and see each other as more than just strangers. Also, the plot summary given about this film is misleading and downright false. No one tries to take advantage of this little girl at all!
