Wandering teachers travel to Iranian Kurdistan, near the border of Iraq. They carry blackboards on their backs that they use to take cover from army helicopters hovering overhead.

His colleague Reeboir (Bahman Ghobadi) attempts to persuade a band of young thieves to allow him to teach them. Both find their lives taking unexpected turns.
