Mamo, an old and legendary Kurdish musician living in Iran, plans to give one final concert in Iraqi Kurdistan. After seven months of trying to get a permit and rounding up his ten sons, he sets out for the long and troublesome journey in a derelict bus, denying a recurring vision of his own death at half moon. Halfway the party halts at a small village to pick up female singer Hesho, which will only add to the difficulty of the undertaking, as it is forbidden for Iranian women to sing in public, let alone in the company of men. But Mamo is determined to carry through, if not for the gullible antics of the bus driver. Written by

i do not speak Kurdish but the subtitle was done very good so it did not bother me. as the film started i thought it will be a easy going comedy but i was in for a surprise. this film is a cinematic master piece about the every day hardship Kurd's go thru in Iran, Iraq and Turkish border. film had a supernatural story to it i do not know the writer but this is one of the most imaginative story i have ever seen. director did a great job capturing the Kurdish land, nature and culture. i fell in love with characters film felt more like real life footage that was how good the acting was. i say this movie is a must see for every one especially for Kurdish people it will make you laugh and cry at the same time
