Sholeh is a lonely little nine-year-old girl. She eats her lunch at a distance from her schoolmates and wonders why her Zoroastrian mother sends her to a Catholic school in the first place. But the greatest source of sorrow in Sholeh's life is her sad mother's failing health.
Sholeh devises a plan to lift her mother's spirits with a fire-jumping holiday ritual her mother has missed ever since fleeing Iran, but fate seems set on blocking her plan.
This melancholy little nine-minute movie is beautifully filmed with a charming soundtrack of traditional Persian music.
The best part of the movie, however, is the performance by little Tania Haddad, who speaks volumes without ever opening her mouth.
