Beautiful film, some aspects of it a bit too difficult for younger children to deal with. An educated teacher moves to a poor rural town in Iran to teach the children and the run-down schoolhouse. He and the kids fix up the school and the teacher inserts himself as a helpful member of the community. But when the man who has been taking advantage of these people sees that he is being exposed and feels threatened by this man's presence (including the interest of a young widow), he seeks to run him out of town in a most desperate manner. Shows the good, the bad and the glimmer of hope through it all. A lovely snapshot of humanity giving us an interesting insight into rural life in Iran. Well acted, very realistic with beautiful scenes of the Iranian countryside.
