From the celebrated pen of Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami comes a film simple in its construction, but devastating in its implications. In the North of Iran, the rainy season has arrived. After a long prelude where transfer student Reza experiences the sight of the rain for the first time, we are introduced to Koichak, a poor classmate who has been banished from school for breaking a window while playing football. To re-enter, he must buy and install a new pane of glass by the end of the school day, as a storm begins to rage outside. This groundwork thrusts the boy into the arms of nature, as he searches down, with the help of the more well-off Reza, the money necessary to pay for the window. And, surprisingly, the journey back from the distant glazier to the school becomes a suspenseful race against time.
