The Legend of Love (Afsaaneh-ye Eshgh)

The Legend of Love1

Khazar starts a journey through the mountains of Kurdistan to find her beloved, Horam. She has to pass through the magic tunnel of rituals and fabulous beliefs of this ancient land. Years ago, to alleviate his restless soul, Horam quit the medical college to work in a clinic and help the war-struck people of his homeland, the village of Boonan. Khazar's guide on this journey is a cassette Horam left her on which he has explained the reasons of his departure and has sung a love lyric. "The Legend of Love" is a journey to the world of signs.
