During a whole afternoon, Mr. Badii is driving through the hills, desperately seeking someone who can help him. He just needs someone who will bury him the next morning after he commits suicide during the night. A young afghan soldier and a seminarist refuse the well-paid job but an old teacher does.

Very slow but haunting for days.
