More than 100 million children worldwide work as child laborers. Some Iranian officials speak of more than 1,000 children who are forced to work in Iran. Their own families sell them to get money or drugs. This film tells the story of one of these children we may read about in the newspaper when a crime has occurred. Although we see these children in the street, cleaning windshields or selling flowers, we do not feel the tragedy they experience.
