Mastour and Zahra are two young Iraqis who are hopelessly in love with each other.

Shortly after they are married, Mastour and Zahra are forced to separate due to the Gulf War.

On the battlefield, Mastour befriends Riad, a young soldier from Baghdad. Mortally wounded, Mastour makes Riad promise to protect Zahra when the war is over.

When Riad arrives in the village, he falls deeply in love with Zahra. But unable to bear the loss of her husband, Zahra shuts herself off.

In his new hostile environment and as a new conflict is on the verge of inflaming the whole area, Riad will do the impossible to find his place.
