Iqbal Tale Of a Fearless Child

A moving and poetic tale inspired by a true story !
Iqbal, an impish and joyful kid, lives in a impoverished village with his brother Aziz and his mother Ashanta. He spends his days playing football with his friends, drawing and taking care of his cute little goat.
The adventure begins when the family doctor prescribes Iqbal’s sick brother an expensive medication. Iqbal-- who wants to help his family, especially his brother-- decides to travel to the nearby city of Mapour to sell his goat and raise money for the medicine. Unfortuantely, nothing goes as planned...
Inspired by the true story of the Pakistani boy hero Masih, this poignant tale about children’s rights is a must-see movie for the whole family!
