SYNOPSIS
The daily life of a daydreaming little girl, Bahar, and her persistent efforts to discover the world so she can experience life with all its sweetness and bitterness in her own way. The events of the film are marginal in Bahar’s imaginative world, but the war with its absolute certainty, imposes its reality on the unruly imagination of the little girl.
