Boycott

Synopsis:
 
Valeh is an irregular troop communist. His wife seeks a life and she is against the dangerous activities of her husband. When Vale takes his wife to the hospital for childbirth, he gets arrested in a Team-house and after being tortured and interrogated in the courthouse he is sentenced to execution and is sent to the public jail. In the public jail his friends ask him to die like a hero and make effort for the continuance of the combat but he loses his combat motives despite his friends’ advises because when he dies he will no longer be, so he tries to stay alive or atleast find a better motive for dying.
