About the Film


A tall, slim man walks the ruined city streets with a rifle nonchalantly slung over his shoulder. Haron is a Kurdish sniper and receives a very respectful welcome as he enters a hair salon. After all, he uses his rifle to protect Kobani’s inhabitants from the advancing Islamic State. The hairdresser has lots of questions, but Haron reveals little and heads back to work. We see him hiding behind walls, and from time to time he fires a shot. In the meantime, he reflects on his life as a sniper. He explains his solitary job, his dreams and nightmares.
