A warm drama about the rise and fall of dictatorship. Set to a classroom, over the course of one intense day we get to know Ghani, an idealistic teacher who loses his job on the first day of school. So he makes one final attempt to get it back by locking his students inside the classroom forcing them to resolve a generation long conflict between their villages.

This feature sets up principles against necessity. How long would our beliefs of any kind stand intact when we are forced to choose between them and our livelihood?
