Amir and his sister Maryam's family is poor. To support his single mother, he sells newspapers in the street.One day Amir reads of a painting competition and decides he'd like to take part. He has talent, but no implements to practise with. A neighbour puts him in touch with an artist who supports him in his endeavour and gives him art lessons. But Amir has to work very hard to pay for the special paper he needs for the competition.Together with his friend Ali, he takes on a second job at the market. Ali too has a dream. He'd love to play football, but can't afford the training and can only watch the team he'd like to play for through the fence. Maryam in turn is a big film fan with dreams of her own. Will the three manage to achieve their goals?
