While Babak’s mother prevents him from being committed, he is locked up in his room all day. There, he dreams of going to school – a dream he knows will never come true. Until a friend of his younger brother comes along. He secretly educates Babak and informs his teacher about Babak’s fate. Together they enable him to go to school.
