Mohammad loves to catch the wind with his hands. His world consists of scents and sounds. He can “see” by palpating shapes and facial outlines, because he is blind from birth on. In a special school for blind children he learns to read and write. At the beginning of the summer holidays in Tehran, his father comes down from the mountains to take him back to the remote village where their family lives. Mohammad can finally be together with his beloved grandmother and his two sisters again. In the local school he can keep up with the other children. Only Mohammad’s father is not happy with the situation. He would rather send him to an apprenticeship with a blind carpenter. The grandmother opposes this idea, she wants Mohammad to be close to herself. The decision brings the family to the verge of breaking apart.
