    Drama

    The figure of a white-winged horse has haunted Taha since childhood. Many years ago he had begged his sweetheart to escape their war-torn town together with him. But she chose to stay behind, for she promised her heart to the one who appeared to her as a white-winged horse. Now Taha returns with big hopes that he can win her heart. Alas, amnesia reigns supreme in his old hometown. Hardly a soul still believes in the power of poetry and magic.
