Winner of the 2010 Rooftop Films / Film Movement Distribution Award. Eight-year-old Bruno finds it very interesting that his father, Daan, routinely wants to shave his beard and head before leaving on dangerous military missions in a desert country far away. This time, Daan lets Bruno shave him. Along with this intimate way of saying goodbye, we see what happens to Daan on his mission through Bruno playing with his toy soldiers.
