Synopsis

After ten years in Moscow, broken thug Hamro decides to return to his native Tadjikistan village. When he arrives he finds his mother, Halima, at the point of death. Realising he must sell his mother's house and belongings as quickly as possible to pay his debts, he immediately starts to renovate the house. He is anxious to get a better selling price, but also to grant his mother's wish for a decorative double gate that will allow her coffin to exit in style. Hamro soon gets more than he expected from the quiet countryside village.
