Capitan Gonas with his 3 brothers and 2 sons spend 10 days on his fishing boat, just close to the Iran-Iraq see border at Persian Gulf. Every day morning, they throw their net before sunrise and there is not much to do till sunset. Between each trip, these fisher men spend few days with their loved ones and again it’s time to hit the see for another 10 days. Their ordinary lives become extremely slow and quite while Boredom and Patience become their strength.
