Summary The story is set during recent times in which there are a large number of Afghan refugees living on the outskirts of Tehran. Although almost a silent movie, Baran won a number of awards both nationally and internationally for the director and writer, Majid Majidi. Seventeen year old Lateef works on a construction site in Tehran with illegal Afghan workers. When he is given heavier tasks to compensate for a new Afghan worker, Rahmat, he is filled with resentment and treats Rahmat cruelly. After one of his pranks, Lateef discovers Rahmat is in fact a girl named Baran. Lateef's heart softens towards Baran, 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 jeopardizes his social standing and endangers his own well being to find her
