Summary Rahman is a rural milk-delivery boy who is a prayer refrain chanter at the village mosque. Rahman's village is located in the North-West part of Iran. He has lost his mother at birth. He is attracted to the icon of the Holy Virgin at the village church. There is a strong friendship between Rahman and the priest of the church. Rahman and his blind friend, Davud, face new responsibilities when an accident happens to the priest. Woven into the film are parallels and differences between the religious traditions from the Shi'ite branch of Islam and Christianity, and Western and Eastern cultural tradition.
