The Little Zizou in the title is an eleven-year-old boy Xerxes, played by Jahan Battivala, who is crazy about the French football player Zinedine Zidane. Xerxes calls himself Little Zizou and spends his time fantasizing that his dead mother, who he assumes is now an angel, will somehow transport Zidane to India. His older brother Artazerxes, played by the charming Imaad Shah, is a graphic artist, who along with two friends, is on an improbable quest to convert a junked cockpit into a flight simulator. Their imperious father Cyrus Khodaiji, played by Sohrab Ardeshir, is a self-proclaimed healer and protector of the Parsi faith. Khodaiji initiates a Back-to-Purity movement and assembles the PLO or Parsis’ Liberation Organization. Khodaiji’s fundamentalism and fear-mongering is staunchly opposed by a progressive newspaper editor Boman Pressvala played by Boman Irani. Little Zizou narrates this clash through Xerxes’ eyes. With a gentle wit, Sooni points out the follies of narrow-mindedness and makes a strong plea for love and tolerance.
