Storyline

On a pilgrimage to Mashad from Tehran, a couple's transportation breaks down, far from any major town. The husband, a photographer, seeks help at a nearby village and encounters a teacher who offers to help. Whilst the husband and teacher go off to find a spare part, the wife, who used to be a teacher, takes over the teaching lessons in the village. It is clear that the children live there, in this strange deserted place, without any men, save the teacher and an old signal guard. As the day draws on, the children help to bring a new hope and life into the wife's heart. Written by Sujit R. Varma

boring and amateurish
29 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a dog. It looks like it was filmed in an afternoon.

There is nothing to it no care was given to anything...it is supposed to be a deserted spot yet careless camera angles later in the film show it is near populated areas.

A photographer and his wife get off the main road and their car breaks down. The only one who can repair it is a local school teacher...the wife is also school teacher too so she takes over his class while he repairs the car.

Her day at the school so impressed the kids that they keep following her at the end of the film as she and her husband (car repaired) try to drive off.

Oh yes the woman has not had any children...while she is teaching that afternoon a ewe has a still born lamb under the school (we are talking basics...mud buildings no windows or doors..). But wait!....she has children in the form of the students who adore her and won't let her leave after 5 hours.

Dull boring stupid .... the perfect film to wow idiots.
