Iman reaches out to catch the black berries her older sister was throwing down for her. Iman (meaning faith in Farsi) is a 9-year-old Iranian Arab girl who lives in the suburb of Shush, in northern khoozestan. Iman suffers from a heart disease but her family is too poor to get her meds, let alone admitting her to hospital for her surgery. Iman’s older sister, Zinat, was forced to quit school to work and take care of her younger siblings.
