Synopsis

A father and son go to Israel to learn about the Baha'i faith which they know little about because the religion is taboo in their home country of Iran. Mohsen Makhmalbaf follows a gardener who works at the Baha'i gardens to understand who he is and why he is there. Meanwhile his son Maysam rejects the concept of religion all together and goes out to Jerusalem where he comes across the sacred sites of Jews and Christians where he finds many similarities with the Islamic society he grew up in.
