Rahman is a milk delivery boy and mosque crier in a small village. Delivering milk amid the village's preparations for Ashura, he befriends a local priest, whose own preparations for the Feast of St. Mary go unnoticed by everyone except young Rahman. Much to the chagrin of his father and grandmother, Rahman assists the priest with his preparations. When the priest is injured falling from a ladder, Rahman elects to travel to the city to find the priest's brother. Against the backdrop of the festival, Rahman finds himself changed by his simple act of kindness as he learns of faith, loss and the righteous path of all of God's children.
