An almost blind, deaf old man repairs shoes on the street. A boy from a bakery across the street borrows a pair of shoes from the old man and approaches a girl after school, but the girl seems uninterested in him. One day, the old man helps this broken-hearted boy: he makes a bridge between them. Through the repetition yet variation of simple situations, this heart-warming Iranian film makes us smile. (Billy Choi)
