A small village on the Syrian-Turkish border in the early 1980s: a six-year-old Kurdish boy, Sero, experiences his first year in an Arabic school and must deal with how his small world is radically changing through absurd nationalism. With a good eye for humor and satire, Mano Khalil’s new film recounts a childhood that finds its moments of levity even during the Assad dictatorship.
