After the fall of Saddam Hussein, Baran, a Kurdish independence war hero, resolves to accept a position in a godforsaken village on the border of Iran and Turkey, an illegal-trafficking Mecca. There he meets Govend, a beautiful young woman who has come to work as the teacher in the newly-opened school, despite her twelve brothers' hostility to the idea.
