Kurdistan - a village near the boarder with Iraq Faegh, a hawking player has three wives and 11 children. His occupation with his wives and children is to make a musical instrument, called Daf. Daf is the most famous Iranian instrument with a special site among Kurds. They make this instrument from the sheep hide. The ceremonies for making such an instrument are very interesting and strange, at the same time. Faegh, his wives and children, after making the instruments, take them to the city and sell to large stores for a little money. They leave in absolute poverty. They are also very professional and skillful players who sometimes play for a very little money. For the prohibition of playing among women in Iran, the wives play only in women´s parties and men in men´s parties. They accept trainees (specially children) from among poor people and train them nightly, how to play Daf. This film is a combination of music and life and we enter into the life of this strange family by the excuse of music. They play this instrument on the birthday of an infant and on the other hand they play mourning music by this instrument too.
