This movie was acted very well, showing the power of movies upon everyone. We see a young fatherless boy entranced by what he sees on screen but also by he mechanics of the movie projectionist. He befriends the older man who gradually becomes a father figure for the boy. We follow through the years as the boy experiences first love and army life and leaves the village to gain a career. He only comes back for the funeral of his old friend and discovers his lost love.
