Akbar, Hakim, Mohammad and Suri descend from Afghan immigrants. In daytime they work in their parents’ small workshops, but evenings they escape to the rehearsal room where they blend their dreams and daily frustrations into rock ballads. After months of practising, they finally have the chance to perform before people – in Afghanistan, the country of their parents where they have never been. The young band gradually passes through a range of strong feelings: joy, anticipation, fear, the battle for their own acceptance, and their families’ fear for their safety. With the story of the band as an example, the film offers an uncommon view of the life of immigrants in the Middle East.
