This film consists of a single shot of a classroom as it undergoes a tumultuous period of history, during the Iran-Iraq war. The Iranian army are shown using the room as a staging area, preparing for the Iraqi invasion. Students are taught lessons on how to operate a Kalashnikov rifle rather than the normal education they may have hoped for. From here, the ebb and flow of the Iranian-Iraqi war is shown, as the classroom changes hands and, eventually, is left desolate. But will the sound of the laughter of children ever return to the classroom?
