A 10-year-old deaf Iraqi boy steals an oil canister to help support his financially troubled family. He takes a ride on a bus driven by a cynical man and his charismatic apprentice. The boy gets off to retrieve his fallen hat but loses the bus and the canister inside. After a moment of panic he finds it, and shares it with a friend on his way home while the other boys play football in the alley.

In Arabic with English Subtitles

Advisory: deals with stealing, though for a moral cause
