Taghi is an engineering student in Iran whose parents fled war-torn Afghanistan. When he wants to return to find work, he faces strong opposition from his parents, who fear for his safety. At the height of the USSR’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1982, 1.5 million Afghans undertook the long journey to the border of Iran to flee the war. Taghi, born after that generation, is unwilling to surrender to the restrictions imposed on him and his parents in Iran. Since Afghans in Iran are only allowed to work in manual labor, Taghi plans to move back to his home country, which he has never known. What future awaits him in Afghanistan, where war remains part of people's lives today?
