This documentary is about the vicissitudes story of Iranian music between 1979-1989. The years just after 1979 Revolution through the end of Iran-Iraq war. The narrative of restrictions and obstacles told by musicians, composers and state authorities. Confrontation of music and politics. Simultaneous narration of two stories: the story of young people who sacrificed their lives for their homeland, and the story of musicians who on one hand entered the battle fields by their own language and on the other hand kept Iranian music alive and thriving. And the winner of these two battle fields is Iran and Iranian music, of course.
