A young Iranian man meets a young Afghan man at a train station. Oblivious to their respective nationality, they start talking with each other after sharing a song. And thus, they overcome the conflicts that plague their homes and they quickly learn that they share one mutual feeling – loneliness in a foreign country. A native joins the two men and, without saying or understanding a word, shares his beer with them. As the young foreign men depart from the station, the native man is left behind. He, too, shares their loneliness, because loneliness knows no home.
