Synopsis

A portrait of a Kurdish colonel, who disarmed thousands of roadside bombs and mines – armed only with his courage and a pair of wire cutters. In 2003 Fakhir, a father of eight, joins the army to fight against the terror following the fall of Saddam Hussein. Realizing how many innocent lives are lost to mines he decides to dedicate his life to disarming land mines, risking his life day by day . He seems unstoppable and continues even when his own health is impaired by the explosion of a mine. His ambition to do good is simply greater than his fear.
