This is a 27.5" x 38.75" Iranian poster designed by Manouchehr Abdllahzadeh for the 1989 film Bashu, the Little Stranger written and directed by Bahram Bayzai and starring Susan Taslimi as Naii. Plot summary: During the Iran-Iraq war in the southern part of Iran a boy named Bashu [Adnan Afravian] loses his home and family to a bombing. He sneaks into the back of a truck and goes to sleep. When he wakes up the truck is much further north in a place where demolition is being used for road clearing. He runs away from the explosions and eventually finds himself at a farm being worked by Naii, whose husband is away. Naii gives Bashu food and water, but she finds they do not speak the same language. Naii is kind to Bashu and he tries to reciprocate by helping her. When Naii's husband [Parviz Poorhosseini] comes home he does not like having Bashu in the house. Bashu senses this and runs away; Naii finds sleeping in an outbuilding during a storm and brings him back.
