The story of this film is about the lives of 6 individuals from two different regions of one country. Their stories entail the genocides and unfortunate incidents that occurred to the Kurdish nation in Iraq, but what brings them together is football fields. Even though these individuals have been through very difficult situations, they still love life and football is a big part of their lives.
The film tells the story of the youth of two villages where the football field of their village is the only peaceful space in their life. One player is a border smuggler, another one is a border control officer, and another one is a martyr who is the symbol of sports in his area. This film is the story of Kurdish youth, and how, after the genocide, they want to live and play again.
