Routine violence and muezzins' calls for prayers shape the time-flow of daily life in Indian Kashmir. From traumatic memories of a guerrilla's funeral to the present anti-India street-riots, throughout a maimed muhajideen's tale, people's destiny seems to be stretched between hope and anger, love and grief, poetry and brutality.
Almost 30 years have gone since the beginning of the armed struggle and notwithstanding a widespread frustration, the controversial dream of Kashmir's independence, along with the nightmare of the conflict, is still preserved alive. A film about the vicious cycle of violence; perpetuated in the intimacy of ordinary life.
