On the streets of Tehran, twelve-year-old Ali and his three friends scramble to survive by doing small jobs and committing petty crimes. When a local crime boss presents them with an opportunity to improve their lives, they find themselves enrolled in a school for marginalized kids. Drawing on diverse influences including neorealism, social issue films, humanistic drama and magical realism, Sun Children is, at once, a riveting adventure story and an urgently heartfelt cry against the exploitation of children.

Post-film discussion will be held immediately following the screening.
