Join Asia Society Texas for the 29th Houston Festival of Films from Iran. Ali (Rouhollah Zamani) is a 12-year-old in Tehran working hard to survive and support himself, doing small jobs in a garage and committing petty crimes to make fast money. After being asked to uncover an underground treasure, he recruits his friends to help him out and they enroll in a charitable institution called the Sun School to gain access to the tunnels where the treasure is located. Acclaimed director Majid Majidi combines elements of adventure and humanist drama with a Neorealist approach for a gripping and propulsive tale of youthful struggle and determination.
