In the Name of God

Hi there!

I need some mint.

How about some basil too?

Yeah, why not.

Throw in some coriander too.

Oil! Buy some oil!

Hi there, Reza!


(Whispering a prayer)

- Hello, ma'am.

- Hi there.

O, father!

I think of our village's stray dogs.

If you showed no fear,

they'd not dare attack.

They'd run away with the slightest wave.

But if you were afraid of them,

they'd pounce on you.

In case of Israel,

our lands have been...


This is a red alert warning!

It means there will be an air strike.


By Hatef Alimardani

Leave work and go to

the nearest shelter!

Don't be afraid! Don't!

It's nothing. Don't worry.

(Reciting a prayer)

Don't be afraid!

Don't be afraid!

(Saying a prayer)


You went there again?

What's the matter?

Your dad?



Where are you going, Yarahmadi?

Come to the Principal's Office!

Yarahmadi! To the Office!

All right.

I'll come.

I'll be there by sunset at the latest.

Hopefully he'll get better.

All right.


Please think of something

for the 5th graders.

I've become like a spare teacher.

I've asked them ten times.

They don't have any available

teacher so late in the year.

They keep hesitating so the year ends.

They should have thought of

it before their "cleansing"!

Aren't you coming?

No, go ahead.


Where were you going?

I was going to cut some berry leaves for

the silk worms from near Abajan's house.

Forget it. Let's go home now.

We'll go to Abajan's later on.

- Bye for now.

- Bye.

The sweets are 15 tomans.

The biscuits?

The biscuits are...

What's going on?

Who are the school cars waiting for?

Hurry up!

Stay here.

What are you doing here? Go!

What are you lads doing here?

Nothing, really.

Why are you standing here there?

Get lost! Now! So help me God

if I see you here again!

How many times should I tell you to

bring your stand closer to school?

The school cars' drivers told me to move!

They've got no right to say that!

Don't even come tomorrow if you're

going to stay on this side!

Yes, sir!

Let go of that kid, for God's sake!

Now go!


What is it?

The doctor came to see him.

He said he won't last till morning.


Hi there.


Sorry I got here so late.

I was busy.

Do you hear me, dad?

Take the child outside.


Let's go sweetie.



Are you all right?

His body is cold.

Have you given him Sideritis?

Nazkhand gave him Ziziphora.

That thing is useless.

Have we got any Sideritis?

We might have some left.

Here, it'll be ready in a second.

This brings the dead back to life!

Hold this.

In the Name of God.

Open your mouth.

Open! Open!

What's in it?

Kazem's mother used to make this.

It brings the dead to life.

Drink this, dad.

Drink it.

There you go!

(Whispering a prayer)


Is that you, Heshmat?

No, no news here.

(Everyone saying a prayer)

I'll call you right back, Heshmat.

Yes, bye for now.

Thank you, Kazem!

Make way!

God gave him a new lease of life.

Didn't I tell you the

drink does miracles?

He needs his teeth.

Where are they?

You had them.

Go bring them.


This is a red alert warning!

It's red!


Just go!

Where is the wheelchair?

Why a wheelchair?

To take him with us.

Just go already!

Why are you standing there?

Move it!

Hurry up!

Sit down, kids.

Turn it off!

What about Abajan?

I kept telling her, but

she wouldn't listen!

Turn that thing off!

Let's all say a prayer.

Sit down!

It's nothing!

Just sit down!

It's nothing.



You slept on!

Hurry up before it's too

late for morning prayers.
