This simple moral tale seems to prefigure Where Is the Friend's House? Two young schoolboys, Dara and Nader, are friends until Dara returns Nader's notebook torn and Nader retaliates in kind, setting off an escalating battle that leads to physical injury. In the second offered solution to the offense, Dara realizes his wrongdoing and repairs the notebook, preserving the peace and the friendship. The film is shot mostly using close-ups, with a narrator drolly chronicling the action.
