Category: Edition 1978

A blind boy aged 12 and his older brother spend part of the year in northern Iran. The little blind man plays the flute while his brother collects the offers; the two are very fond of each other, and with the money collected the older boy would like to make the minor work in the eyes. One day a foreigner, as a joke, breaks the trust that exists between the two brothers, in fact he says he has given a gold coin on offer while it is not true. From that moment on, the blind boy loses his trust in his brother and suspects that the latter robs him. Only after a long time does something happen that makes suspects disappear in the blind man and brings together the two brothers as before.
