Following the fall of Saddam Hussein, Baran, a Kurdish independence war hero, has thoughts of quitting the police now that society is at peace. When he’s posted to a small town, at the borders of Iran, Turkey and Iraq, he has to patrol a lawless territory, right at the heart of illegal drug trafficking. Faced with the corrupt tribal leader, Baran refuses to look aside and finds himself the protector of young single female teacher, Govend (the always excellent Golshifteh Farahani) in this modern day western.

Nominated at the Cannes Film Festival, this is one of the best films of the year and a modern classic in the making.
