Kakooti, a girl of 13, is tenacious: she excels at school, she shops for groceries, and she goes to the city by herself to convince her uncle to repay a loan (securing medical care for her ailing mother). And on top of all this, she must contend with a bully.
Along the way, viewers accompany her on all her urgent journeys. See this film for an under gettable slice of life inside of Iran, and to find out just how strong and determined a young girl can be.
Plot includes scenes of emotional difficulty and illness, with a happy ending!
