This film from the accomplished Kambuzia Partovi is partly set in an orphanage in Tehran. The film centres around a young boy and his sister - who together attempt a perilous escape from the orphanage after a married couple arrive to adopt the sister. Like the brother-and-sister pair in Majid Majidi's highly acclaimed 'Children of Heaven', the young sibling duo must learn to grow up quickly and act like adults. Once outside the walls and beyond the clutches of the orphanage, the children enter a strange world. There they encounter cats that behave and exhibit the characteristics of human beings.
