There is a big problem for Ali and his sister, Zahra: Ali has lost Zahra's shoes and now they both have to use the same pair of shoes. They have made arrangements with themselves so no one takes notice of this. But circumstances exacerbates day by day. Thus Ali and Zahra decide to solve the problem by themselves, without their parent's knowledge. They know that their father, despite all of his efforts, is unable to pay for another pair of shoes. Meanwhile, Ali finds out about a running competition in his school that awards the third place winner with a pair of shoes. Ali is qualified for the competition. But during the match, he gets excited and forgets that he has to win the third place. Ali, sad because he has won the first place, is faced with the animated face of Zahra, whom their father has bought a new pair of shoes.
