Abstract:

This lovely short film is in the form of a poetic visual letter composed by an Iranian prisoner of war held in an Iraq concentration camp. During his long twenty-year captivity he writes to his child once a year, not certain if the child is a boy or a girl since his wife was pregnant when he was captured. The film offers a rare view inside a crowded POW camp where men play volleyball, chess and walk in circles with their own dreams. We are privileged to hear the dreams of one of the nameless prisoners.
