    • Synopsis
    • Dastaguir sits on the side of the road, his young grandson, Yassin, at his side. A desolate Afghan landscape stretches out all around. That road leads to a far-off coalmine, Dastaguir's dreaded, yet ultimate, destination. He is on a desultory journey to see his son, the child's father, who works in the mines. He must tell him that their village has been bombed and his entire family killed.
