Time Out says

More linear and less obviously poetic than Jalili's likewise impressive Dance of Dust, this affecting docu-drama concerns a nine-year-old unable to hold down a job because his drug addict parents never properly registered his birth or got him an ID. Meanwhile the family of a girl - the boy's friend - plans to take her out of school and marry her to a much older man. An intelligent, heartfelt indictment not only of how adult worlds wreck childhood, but of the Catch-22 situations fostered by excessive bureaucracy. A tough, deeply humane film.
