The war begins on the other side of a dam which acts as a natural border between two states. Ciwan, who works ferrying people across the lake, bumps into a 10-year-old girl escaped from the battlefield. She is called Leyla, as the Kurdish politician who became a symbol of resistance. Meeting with Leyla brings Ciwan to reflect on his choices and his people's sufferings.
