Don is the story of a young boy desperate to find work to help support his family and heroin addicted parents. Moving from employer to employer, Don, aged only 9 and illiterate, faces an almost impossible task without an identity card. Part of the Iranian New Wave, Abolfazl Jalili's use of non-actors gives the film the feeling of a documentary, as performers recreate lives so close to their own. From Don's point of view, the world is a tough place, but his determination to make the most of his situation is heartwarming.
