A group of male teachers crosses the mountainous paths of the remote Iranian Kurdistan region. Carrying large blackboards on their backs, they wander from village to village in search of students.
"There is something distinctively surreal and almost ludic about Makhmalbaf's vision that envelops its elements of pathos and political anger in a sheen of mystery and enigma. The poetry and tenderness of her film are compelling.” – The Guardian
