In a remote area in Afghanistan, stories of the lives of a young shepherdess, a bird hunter boy, and a mourning teacher are intertwined after their school is burnt down. The young shepherdess takes the risk of saving a US soldier after her helicopter crashed; the bird hunter boy takes shelter in a tank with the birds, the pin-ups and the illegal music that he loves; and the mourning teacher seeks vengeance on the one who has widowed her.
