EN - This film recounts fragments of stories from the life of an Afghan family in Iran and the hardships they undergo which ultimately force them to flee to Europe. In Iran, discrimination of Afghans is present in all aspects of life - and even in death. The film is written, directed and acted by the Hakimi family, with the assistance of director Rokhsareh Ghaemmaghami (Sonita). It is a call out to all people who have no land to go back to and who are in search for a new homeland.
