In a little village on the Syrian-Turkish border in the early 80s, a six-year-old Kurdish boy experiences his first year in an Arab school and sees how his little world is radically changed by absurd nationalism. With a fine sense of humor and satire, the film shows us that in the midst of dictatorship and dark drama, childhood also has its light moments. How much friendship, love and solidarity are possible in times of repression and despotism? The film, inspired by the director’s personal experiences and bittersweet memories, connects the Syrian tragedy to the present.


Winner: SF Film Critics Jury Prize, San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 2021; Audience Award, Boston Jewish Film Festival 2021; Special Jury Mention, Warsaw Jewish Film Festival 2021.
