Afshin and his younger brother Benjamin live at the hillside of the Chil Dokhtaran mountains. Grown up next to the city full of bombs and sirens, violence has become a part of their innocence. When their father leaves for another country, an end comes to Afshin’s childhood. Abbas is a ruthless bus driver. The lengthy process of his tempts to fix his broken bus reveals his way of living between truth and lies. Their stories will intermingle with the city scenes, passengers etc on the bus ride, to complete the symphonic portrait of the city. Without showing shocking scenes, the film portraits the soul of Kabul that is in agony.
