While working as a Kolbar*, a quarrel arises between father and son, which begins with the son's exhaustion. The father tells him an old Kurdish legend to encourage him to persevere in their kolbari work. But the son talks about his love, who has turned away from society and joined the freedom fighters because of the ongoing situation in Kurdistan. In the midst of their argument, they are shot dead by Iranian border guards ...

*Kolbar are porters from the Kurdish-Iranian border provinces who earn their living by transporting goods across the Iranian-Iraqi and Iranian-Turkish borders.

This will be followed by a discussion with the director Jiyar Jahan Fard.
