I had a lot nostalgia with this movie despite it was my first time watching this movie. During the war between Iran and Iraq a boy who's from south-east where is affected from war more than anywhere. By hiding in a truck accidentally goes to north of Iran. The safest place during the war. It seems people are not aware of the war. It was funny for me that these people never seen a person with dark side and they were laughing at Bashu. Susan Taslimi was great. In my opinion she is the best Persian actress. I'm so sad she left Iran that soon and she didn't act in more movies. All her movies worth watching at least for seeing her act. This movie was boycotted for about 4 years. They said this movie is antiwar and is not a propel movie during the war. But it has shown after the war on 1990.
