Set during the Iran-Iraq war, this remarkable play focuses on one central event. In the midst of the Khuzestan province during the month of Ramadan, the Iranian and Iraqi sides put aside their weapons and form an amicable, if somewhat unexpected, truce. The whole play is staged during one night, when a truce forms between the Iranians and Iraqis during the month of Ramadan. As the soldiers joke, argue, and discuss politics, we can't help but wonder what will become of them in the future. A philosophical look at the role of the individual in the face of war.
