A road trip story set in Iraqi Kurdistan during the Iran-Iraq war in 1988. A young Kurdish man (Ako) is forced to join Iraqi Army, while he is dreaming of escaping the country. He is sent to the frontline of war and is subject to abuse by the other Iraqi soldiers, due to his Kurdish background. When he is to escort the coffin of a fellow soldier to his family, an unexpected opportunity for escaping comes up. His driver turns out to be an Arab with strong feeling against the Kurds. As the two set out for the long journey across the Iraqi landscape, Ako does his best to trick the driver into heading toward Kurdistan.
