Thirteen-year-old Kak (Soran Ebrahim) is known as "Satellite" for his installation of dishes and antennae for local villages looking for news of Saddam. He is the dynamic leader of the children in the Kurdish refugee camp at the border of Turkey and Iraq, organizing the dangerous but necessary sweeping and clearing of the minefields.

He then arranges trade-ins for the unexploded mines. The industrious Satellite falls for an orphan (Avaz Latif) -- a sad-faced girl traveling with her brother Henkov (Hirsh Feyssal), who appears to have the gift of clairvoyance. The siblings are taking care of three-year-old Risa, whose connection to the pair is discovered as harsh truths are unveiled.
