This extraordinary, beautiful film from Iran tells the story of young Jolie, whose pet mountain goat is to be sacrificed for village custom. Jolie sets out to win the local ski competition and save his goat with the prize money but his ski poles are broken and time is running out. A funny, tender and very different story of determination and tradition, set amongst magnificent landscape and rural scenes.
