There are some men in Iran who have a penchant for raising pigeons. In Persian slang, they are known as "Love Guys". The story of Ali Aqa (Mr. Ali) revolves around one such guy who has been a professional pigeon keeper for nearly 50 years in an old neighborhood in Shiraz. He is an old man now, and he cannot look after his birds as he used to. As the result, his pigeons have fallen sick or dead, and this has led Mr. Ali's family to be against keeping the birds and to try to make him sell them. Mr. Ali doesn't want to accept that his time, as well as his old love for these birds, is ending. He is constantly fighting everybody around him to try to save his birds. Written by Anonymous
