This is one movie that can be watched by a 3 year old baby as well as a 70 year old human being and both these age groups will definitely be touched by this gem of a movie.This was the first Iranian film to be nominated for an Academy Award. It lost the "Best Foreign Film" award to Life is Beautiful in 1998.
Ali enters a high-profile children's footrace in the hope of receiving the third prize of a new pair of sneakers. He accidentally places first and wins another prize instead. The film ends with Zahra finding out that she will not get a new pair of shoes, but there is a quick shot of their father's bicycle at the end of the movie that shows what appears to be the red shoes Zahra had been focusing on earlier and another pair of white sneakers, presumably for Ali, whose old sneakers were torn from so much use. The film ends with the final shot showing blisters on Ali's feet.(This scene will make everyone cry)
