Amir Naderi's 1985 film The Runner is about a young boy who lives in a small town on the Persian Gulf. Amiro has lost his home and family, and leads a sad and lonely life. Without parents, he must survive on his own initiative and so searches the rubbish dumps for junk that he can sell on to people. He finds joy in running and competes against the local boys in the village. A life-affirming tale about human resilience.
