He is the dynamic, but manipulative leader of the children, organizing the dangerous but necessary sweeping and clearing of the minefields. Many of these children are injured one way or the other, yet still maintain a boisterous prattle whenever possible, devoted to their work in spite of the vagaries of their life.

Le réalisateur Jafar Panahi, se faisant passer pour un chauffeur du nom d'Aghayé Panahi (en persan : آقای پناهی, Mr. Panahi) se trouve au volant d’un taxi partagé dans la capitale iranienne de Téhéran dans lequel il a installé une caméra. Cette caméra filme une succession d’archétypes iraniens variés qui prennent tous place à bord du taxi, les personnages étant plus ou moins conscients du stratagème orchestré par le cinéaste. Hommes ou femmes, jeunes ou vieux, riches ou pauvres, traditionalistes ou modernistes, aussi bien vendeur de vidéos pirates que défenseur des droits de l'homme, tous se retrouvent tour à tour dans le véhicule. Chaque personnage propose un portrait iranien spécifique et est également porteur d’un thème de société. Le film se termine par le vol de la caméra du taxi.
