In the second story, Baatar, a Russian army recruit, returns home to the steppes, where he finds out that his girlfriend is getting married to another man. Baatar tries to talk to the girl, but her brothers prevent their meeting. The hero of the third story is Purbe, a veteran of the Chechen war who was a trooper and cannot find his place in the civilian world; he longs for his days in the army. The three stories are connected by three folk songs and the steppe where all of them take place.

 

DEKALA PURUDU KENEK / THE STRANGE FAMILIAR / Malith Hegoda / Sri Lanka

Dinithi tries very hard to communicate with her husband, but he ignores her presence. Relentlessly. The more she tries to reach him, the more profound his silence becomes. Their 8-year-old daughter watches them despondently. Dinithi's parents try to get involved but they receive the same treatment from him. When she leaves the house, it is only with her daughter and to run errands... always with the same taxi that he has arranged. Dinithi is attractive to men and she knows it. So does her husband. One day, the husband is involved in a road accident in which a pedestrian is killed. His wife rushes to his side, hoping to be of help. Now he needs her more than ever...
