Description: Young Latif works on a Tehran construction site with his fellow Iranians and a few illegal Afghan workers. When Latif is given heavier tasks to accommodate new Afghan worker Rahmat, he resents his displacement and treats Rahmat cruelly. After one of his pranks, though, Latif discovers Rahmat's secret -- he is a girl. Latif's heart softens to Rahmat and he shows his new affection for her by doing what he can to ease the hardships she suffers at work. When government inspectors force all Afghans to be fired from the site, Lateef discovers he cannot bear to be without her. Jeopardizing social standing and endangering his own well being, Latif stops at nothing to save his love.
