The new recruits barely know how to march let alone stand at attention properly.
In a scene reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," the recruits get mandatory haircuts.
Taghi (Mohammad Taghi Hashemi) finds comfort in his audio recordings.
The loud-mouthed and short-tempered Faramouz (Faramouz Hashemzadeh) is easily provoked by a careless bunkmate's dangling foot.
Taghi earns his right to a furlough by successfully holding his gun one-handed for thirty seconds.
Many of the soldiers record messages to their families so Taghi can relay them while in the city.
Taghi begins fulfilling his mission but finds some aspects more difficult than others.
Taghi wanders aimlessly, recording the sounds of the city.
"The world captures me."
The conscripts, most of whom come from rural villages, excitingly gather around to hear Taghi's recordings of the big city.
After a snap inspection, the tape recorder is discovered.
