'Se Noughta' tells the story of a single woman, Gul Afrooz, who lives in a village in northwestern Afghanistan along the border with Iran who is struggling to raise her three children. Although she is engaged to her lover Firooz, she is forced to marry an old warlord, who is a Khan. Caught in traditional structures, the Khan sends her to Iran as a drug courier for an opium smuggling ring. The ring is busted and she is arrested.
This is a story of a woman from Herat province who smuggles narcotics to Iran in order to feed her children and also to appease the Khan who threatens her. Gul Afroz faces the Iranian police forces somewhere between Iran-Afghanistan borders.
