The unforgettable story of Masih, a teenage Afghan boy, who struggles to find his place amidst a chaotic atmosphere of war and political upheaval during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. -Kabul, Afghanistan - On a winter night in 1980, intelligence officers of the Marxist regime raid Dr. Sharif’s house and arrest him. They accuse Sharif of having ties with the mujahidin, anti-government forces. After his arrest, his fourteen-year-old son Masih aspires to quit school and join his mujahidin cousins in Deh Darya, The River Village near Kabul in order to fight against the invading Soviet army. He believes the sooner he topples the government, the sooner his father will return home. However, Nadia, his mother and a strong-minded woman, opposes his decision. She is determined to keep her son, her only child alive by preventing him from becoming a member of the anti-communist militant movement. Meanwhile, Masih is forced to join the very same regime that has kidnapped his father, a bitter reality that he conceals from his mother.
