The Cart (Charkh)

The Cart1
 
 

A restless boy is forced by his peddler father to spend a whole day inside his dad's cart as a punishment. Ironically, this gives the kid the chance to see the world, as tough as it is, through a small hole on the cart. And then what happens during the day brings about a new understanding and a new relationship between the father and the son.
