Prepare yourself for a film that has guts, heart and streetsmart charisma!

 

SUN CHILDREN is the story of 12-year-old ALI and his three friends. Together they work hard to survive and support their families, doing small jobs in a garage and committing petty crimes to make fast money. In a turn of events that seems miraculous, Ali is entrusted to find a hidden treasure underground. He recruits his gang, but first, to gain access to the tunnel, the children must enrol at the Sun School, a charitable institution that tries to educate street kids and child labourers, close to where the treasure is located.

 

★★★★

"Majid Majidi’s cast of young toughs digging for treasure under a school delivers a heart-rending story with unexpected depth of emotion"

- Xan Brooks, The Guardian.
