Synopsis

Djomeh is a young Afghan man who works on a small dairy farm in the remote Iranian coutryside. Every morning, Djomeh accompanies farm owner Mr. Mahmoud to nearby small villages to collect milk for resale. Unlike his older guardian and co-worker Habib, Djomeh's naive spirit cannot be stifled because of his foreigner status. He smiles and speaks openly despite the villagers' suspicious and cold attitudes. Because of Habib's conservative personality, Djomeh does not feel comfortable turning to him for advice. Even when he falls for for local girl Setareh and dreams of settling down in Iran. Unfortunately, strict Iranian customs do not allow for an open courtship. Djomeh asks Mr. Mahmoud to serve as a chaperone to pursue marriage with Setareh. A bold gesture that crosses all cultural boundaries.
