Description: Children of Heaven is an engaging little story about two children in modern-day Iran who have to share one pair of shoes in a sort of relay while each attends school at different times during the day. Finally, the boy enters a much-publicized foot race, hoping to place third. The prize: a new pair of sneakers. This bright jewel of a film touches the heart and reveals the universality of familial love and the determination of kids to make do even in the direst circumstances.

"Mar.13 For a pair of shoes, two Afghan children go to great lengths and learn much more about life in a few months than in a whole year or more.
