There is a place far away from us where a comfortable home can be a tank relict. where a necklace made of bullet shells can be the most precious jewel to gift to your loved one. Where if you are a young girl to whom the war exterminated your parents in front of your eyes and who gave birth to a child as a result of rape, life has no more meaning.
"Brother Satellite", is a 13-year-old boy and the leader of a little "army" of refugee orphans in a village on the Iraq-Turkey border. Life passes with difficulty and difficulties in the hope that there will be soon an American invasion that will end the genocide of the Kurdish population of Iran and the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. The beautiful Angrin arrives in the refugee camp and Satellite falls in love at first sight with her and courts her. But there is no room for feelings in Angrin's young and fragile heart devastated by the pains and demons of his violent recent past.

Devastating like a stab in the stomach. Disarming as a sad truth that the world ignored. Another unmissable Bahman Ghobadi masterpiece winner of Concha de oro, at San Sebastian film festival Protected content
