Mahdi, his older brother Saeed and their father sell beautiful red apples in the streets of a Tehran suburb. At home, the boys’ mother earns her money by washing clothes. When the father’s truck is stolen, the small family’s livelihood is threatened. At the same time, Saeed feels responsible for filling a basket with apples promised for his little brother’s class. With quiet borrowings from neorealism, Ghaffari’s film shows the worries and hardships of a precariously living family that never gives up hope and stands up for each other with loving solidarity. “The Apple Day” celebrated its premiere in the Berlinale section “Generation Kplus”.
Presented in cooperation with the “Cinepänz” film festival for young audiences!
