A group of reporters from Tehran arrive in a small Kurdish village near the Iranian border, in order to cover the coming death of an old villager. Behzad, one of the reporters, meets a boy named Farzad who leads him to Malek, the dying old woman that he is supposed to cover. Behzad’s original interest was in a traditional Kurdish ritual of slashing one’s face as a sign of lament and respect when a relative dies. But through saving an old man’s life and through his friendship with the village doctor, Behzad begins to recognize the value of life and nature.
