In 2010, this film started out as an ordinary documentary about the maker’s family and the city of Salamya where they live. However, it immediately fixates on its first subject: Hassan, the maker’s farmer cousin with a shed full of cows he is very fond of. When Ali Sheikh Khudr returned two years later, the war proved to have inflicted deep wounds.
