Twelve year-old Ali and his three friends are small-time criminals and take different jobs on the streets of Tehran to keep them and their families alive. One day, Ali is tasked with digging up a treasure that is buried in the city’s catacombs. To find the right tunel, Ali and his friends sign up to the Sun School–a school for street children–from whose cellar the digging can commence. An exciting, dirty and pulsating film from a thronging Tehran.
