During the events of 1979, the Iranian Kurdistan was caught up in the turmoil. Political quarrels resulting from the Islamic revolution forced the Iranian Kurds to flee the country and seek refuge in Iraq where they were put in camps such as Altash. The living conditions in the camps were clearly disgraceful. The film begins in 2004 in Iraq. Sheelan, a young female doctor of Kurdish origin, who had fled to Sweden with her parents, takes advantage of Saddam's fall to go back to Iraq.
