A Kazakh family of the Saparkul returns from Afghanistan to their historical homeland in Kazakhstan. The road from the hell of war to the peaceful paradise is hard. Sadly, the homeland hardly remembers its forgotten sons. The repatriates face social problems. However, one doesn’t choose the father’s home: it is their home and their land where the heroes and their descendants will live.
