Two lone figures meet in a desolate landscape. One, an Afghan boy, is there to bury his family, killed in a massacre. The other, a soldier, wounded physically and spiritually from too much killing, who struggles with his basest instincts to move toward healing.

Artist's statement:

We used to love making movies with guns, drugs and gangsters and after completing this movie we realized how big its message actually affected us. We are now all about movies that have a positive message. It was a long arduous task to complete this project as almost every phase of it was completed by the two of us. There came a time when it seemed like we might not be able to complete it and had it not contained such an important message we may not have forged through. It put a huge strain on our collaborations as well as our friendship but completing it and seeing the response has been the biggest reward we could have asked for. Our dream is only that people see it and hopefully discuss its content.
