Actually the director intermixes the rule of a " chess game" and the Islamic belief " ya'a aleph" in the story-telling process.
Actually those refugees are considered as 'Pawns' in the chess game. Visibly pawns are the most weakest among all the other members in the chess board of life. But if they proceeds well and survives till the end , they can be the most powerful. That's the rule implied here.
The 'pawn' in the story is actually the character 'Eissa'. He is a very good, gentle, kind and a lovable boy. He cares for everyone. He doesn't hurt others unless they are a threat to his beloved. But he has the ability to survive till the end. He is somewhat childish and immature. Actually his life is the sacrifice from his own sister, 'Maryam'. . 'Maryam' is a respectable personality, who's just opposite to the character of 'Eissa'. She too cares for her loved ones but she's too brave and intelligent. She was excellent at observing the villian but unfortunately failed at underestimating the brain behind him. That caused all the massacre.
But the Most Appreciable character in this film is "RAYA". She is an acid attack survivor. Her husband, 'Idrees' has been killed by the villian , in a bomb blast due to which their water tank has been destructed.They lose their water supply. So, Raya along with Eissa and Qais went in search for water.After a bit of searching they found some water and it has been taken in a bottle brought by them and the bottle was in the hands of Raya. But unfortunately they gets trapped in a huge manhole which is put on fire by the antagonist .Somehow Eissa and Qais gets out of it but even after holding Eissa's hands towards Raya , she couldn't get hold of it . He was unable to stretch it even more as the fire flames are already too high to burn his hands, so out of heat flame he took off his hands. Helpless Raya , screams loudly . As her body has already started to burn off she's started to realize that she cannot escape the fate. This is when I had cried for the first time while watching this movie. " She throws the water bottle towards them and surrenders herself to death crying aloud."
Just imagine the level of consideration in her heart. Who would think about those living or who have escaped ,when we are under the fear and pain of death that has been pulling us? They are not her sons or brothers. "That is Raya".
Shuaib - The man who is just the father version of his own son - Eissa. Shuaib is a lovable man, a loving father , a caring friend , an unbiased leader , a considerate for humanity. He along with his son welcomes all these tragedy to all those people.
Jamal is an intelligent man. He can predict future and gives good advises but he becomes too selfish after the death of Shuaib, that ultimately kicks him out of the troop.Later on our villian who is waiting to seperate each man , one by one , captures Jamal and uses him as a bait..
The rest is upto you,or else it won't be that much interesting if the whole story's mentioned.
