Kamal is twenty. He has been married for a few months but his wife is still a virgin. The doctor who examines him can’t find anything wrong with him physically. Kamal moves to a city in search of another woman. The city is full of women but he doesn’t meet any of them. Except a stranger he touched lightly in a trolley bus. This encounter leads Kamal much further than he had expected.

“Kamal lives in a village but he’s not a caricature of a villager. He could just as well be a city dweller... and my film could come from any cinematography. At the same time, I am weakened by that. I can no longer hide or distinguish myself through folklore... The world of women is more interesting than that of men. Women are more subtle, more sensitive from a moral point of view. We men can steal, kill, do something stupid without thinking. Women think first. They are responsible, they think things over. The world of men is more rigid, more symmetrical. The world of women fluctuates more. It’s very important to tell a story from a woman’s point of view.” Jamshed Usmonov
