    • Synopsis
    • Nine-year-old Nader loves to run, as if he wants to defy gravity. We follow him as he journeys through his village, down winding paths bordered with lush green forests, greeting each neighbour as he passes, until he climbs up a large mountain to the tallest point where he looks down over his small village with a sense of awe and freedom. While shopping for Eid clothes with his parents, he sets his heart on a pair of expensive shoes beyond what his father can afford. A touching short that transports the audience into a boy’s dream world through the magic of animation
