In the tiny Kurdish village of Caucasus lives widowed army veteran Hamo. A few precious comforts - an old, red armoire, an archaic television set, his old uniform and a seven dollar monthly pension - keep him company until some long awaited correspondence, and more importantly money, reaches his remote village from his son who has begun a new life in Paris. Each day Hamo wakes to the rabble of eccentric villagers before making the long bus journey through the snow to an isolated cemetery and the grave of his beloved wife. Each day he brushes the fresh snow from her grave. And each day he spies on Nina, an attractive widow taking a few contemplative hours out of her low paid job on a roadside vodka lemon stall. With the sporadic letters from his son yielding little in the way of comfort or money, Hamo's thoughts turn to his burgeoning friendship with the beguiling Nina on the silent, empty bus journey each day from the village to the cemetery and back.
