The idealistic new teacher at a primary school in a poor district of Tehran falls in love with the older sister of one of his misbehaving pupils, but has a rival in the form of the aggressive, wealthy local butcher. Director Beyza’i fills his realistic portrayal of the school and inner-city society with poetic touches, weaving a rich tapestry of life during a time of transition from tradition to modernity. [PG]
