In a remote, isolated Yazidi Kurdish village in post-Soviet Armenia, Hamo, a widower with a pitiful pension and three worthless sons, travels daily to his wife's grave. There he meets the lovely Nina, who is communing with her late husband. The two are penniless--she works in a local bar that is about to close down, while he has been forced to start selling his meager possessions. All seems hopelessly bleak, yet when Hamo begins to court Nina, their unexpected love revitalizes them.Written by

I am glad to see that this movie has been reviewed from Australia to the USA. In fact it's all deserved. If you haven't seen it yet, do it. Maybe i am impartial as I adore east European and ex-ussr movies. Don't seem yet to know why. But it got humour, it got poetry and real life issues are all glued together to form a picture full of realistic feelings.
