Synopsis
Decisive hours have dawned for young Farah. Organizational machinery starts up around him. Farah is examined by a doctor, instructed by the bailiff, and looked after by an imam. Farah is waiting for his parents to visit. “How are you?” is the question everyone asks him that day. Each time, “Fine” is his concise answer. Only when the policewoman takes Farah out of town the next morning does the unspeakable become a painful reality.
