Synopsis: Gabil returns home to the humble family farmstead, surrounded by an orchard of venerable pomegranate trees; since his sudden departure twelve years ago he was never once in contact. After the long period of absence he has returned home to take his family with him to Russia. However, the deep emotional scars he left behind cannot be erased from one day to the next. Gabil represents an unwelcome intrusion of modernity in to the peaceful slow paced village life.
