    • A sensitive feature film about the tension between tradition and modernity, and the difficulty of returning home. Delil Dilanar, a singer of traditional Kurdish songs, has continued to keep alive a rich and complex musical style known as dengbej. However, after 20 years of exile in Europe, he finds that his heart hasn’t followed him. During a concert in New York, he announces his return to his roots. Once he finds himself back in Kurdistan, he falls into a deep depression, and he must turn to his old music master to find his way forward.
