Found as a link on The Movie Database, this is a "fish out of water" tale. Set during the Iran-Iraq war, shell shocked Bashu is in the middle of a battlefield. Hiding in a dried up cornfield, he comes across a truck passing through this Hell of exploding shells and bombs. Stowing away, he is transported from danger to an exotic land where no one speaks his language, the customs and food are different, but no one is trying to kill him. Spooked by a tunnel blasting crew, he takes shelter in a "mouse hole." A woman and her children are tending to crops when the family dog finds him. Can the "dark boy" and this family bond?
