Based on a true story, the film depicts life of a war veteran and his daughter.
The goal of these projections and discussions is to focus the attention on the fact which is often overlooked when presenting the issue if migrations, which is that lives of many refugees and migrants are determined by the wars for the redistribution of resources in the Near and Middle East. How does the recent American film industry represent the people who also have the experience of these wars, but from the position of a much more powerful conqueror, after returning home?
