Synopsis:
For Kurdish children Ameneh, Ayoub and Madi, life is hard. Their mother is dead and their father is often away from home trying to earn the money to keep his family. During these long absences, the children work everyday in a nearby town wrapping glasses for export, or staggering under the heavy loads they carry around the marketplace. After a truck that they are travelling in is impounded by soldiers, the siblings are forced to struggle together through the snow and eventually get involved with the mule-trains which smuggle goods across the mountains of Iraq.
All the while their search continues for a way to pay for the urgent operation that their handicapped brother, Madi, needs if he is to stay alive for even another year. This breathtaking film details, with startling power and incredible emotional depth, the extraordinary lengths to which a family will go to survive the harshest of conditions, where even the horses are fed liquor to numb the pain.
