Several teachers are carrying blackboards on their backs in the mountains of Kurdistan, next to Iran's border with Iraq, and are seeking those who want to study. But there is no one interested in learning. They become dispersed as they hear the sound of a helicopter, so that there remains only Saeid and Rebwa who stay committed to their faith. For the children smuggling goods from Iraq, and the old men trying to get to the border, their efforts and emphasis on knowledge are useless. Saeid remains with the group of the old men. There is a young woman among them called Halaleh who has a child, and to whom Saeid is married. He gives her the blackboard as a marriage gift. He also tries to teach her but he fails. Eventually, Saied takes Halala and her child to the border, get divorced, and leaves them forever. But his blackboard remains with her.
