This documentary brings a poetic story about the life of Abolfazl, an 11-year-old boy who is missing both hands. Despite his disability, Abolfazl lives a full life with his family and friend Setayesh in a palm orchard near the Afghan-Iranian border, where foreign visitors often head for eco-tourism. He and his friend, an eight-year-old girl Setayesh, belong to a group of stateless children living in the remote border area of Iran, and having no birth certificate poses major disadvantage for their future.
