Baran, a hero of the Kurdish war of independence. has become chief of police in the capital, Erbil. No longer at ease in a society at peace, he thinks of quitting the police force, but finally accepts a position in a small valley in Iraqi Kurdistan, on the border with Turkey and Iran. It's a lawless territory, at the heart of a Bermuda Triangle for trafficking in alcohol, drugs and medicine. He refuses to bow down to the rules of Aziz Aga, a corrupt tribal chief and ancestral master of the valley. He encounters Govend, the village's new schoolteacher, who also comes up against the hostility of the inhabitants. Like Baran, she represents another law, that of the young autonomous Kurdish state, and she is in an even more vulnerable position because she's not married. Together, Govend and Baran will challenge the power of Aziz Aga, and will join forces with the Turkish Kurds.
