Akbar, Hakim, Mohammad, and Suri are descendants of Afghan immigrants in Iran. During the day, they work in their parents’ shops, but at night they escape into their own world: rock music. In a small rehearsal room, they blend their dreams and frustrations into rock ballads. After months of practicing, they finally have the chance to perform before an audience – in Afghanistan. Using the story of the band as a lens, this film offers an unconventional view of the life of immigrants in the Middle East.
