Synopsis by Mark Deming
A three-sided romance blooms in the rubble of war in this drama from Iran. In the wake of fighting with Iraq, Dawood (Parviz Parastuyi) is clearing the war-torn desert of mines when he meets Mahbube (Azita Hajiyan), a woman hoping to restore the remnants of her family's farm. A chemistry forms between them, but when Mahbube sells a tank she discovers on her property to a proto-hippie surplus dealer (Reza Kianian), two men find themselves vying for her attention. Director Ebrahim Hatamikia's anti-war saga is marked by outstanding photography and a fine musical score.
