French inspector Alain arrives in Nagorno-Karabakh, a territory long disputed between Armenia and Azerbaijan, to report on the newly reconstructed airport. The locals see it as a crucial event, since the airport enables contact with the rest of the world and is a symbolic confirmation of their own existence. However, Alain’s seemingly simple task is complicated because of the complex local political situation – and, quite unexpectedly, because of a little boy.
