​Life and death are intertwined for Tara, a little girl from Iran’s Kurdish ethnic group. Mothers visit the graves of loved ones, victims of Iran’s revolution in 1979, as Tara and her friends play hide and seek among the graves. Amidst the chaos of the intensifying conflict, Tara receives a fantastic gift of red shoes on New Year’s.
