A village in north-western Afghanistan is the scene of the contest that is symbolically represented as a war of flags. The landscape is not unusual in this region with children playing, a shepherd with his flock and a farmer with his crops. But, the life of these people is not a normal one, because they live in an area that has become the combat area of the United States, Taliban and local army forces. Living together is not easy, but even less so when there are rumours of ISIS forces arriving in the village.

Mohsen Eslamzadeh is a filmmaker who has devoted himself to documentaries and who became known for Alone Among The Taliban. This documentary won the award for best documentary at the 44th Athens International Film, and Video Festival in the United States and the same at the 12th Marbella International Film Festival in Spain. It also won the Shahid Avini awards.
