The rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan has reignited the fire of ethnic and tribal wars. The Hazara Afghans who are under an immediate threat from the Taliban enter Iran illegally. Ahmad is an exiled Iranian teacher in one of the poor villages of Iran close to the Afghanistan border. Upon acquainting a Hazara family from Afghanistan he sees the real face of prejudice and dogmatism in the region. A forbidden love makes him act and discover the lack of love and bravery in his own life.
