One day, I'll have

a house like this.

-A sweet little house.

-Yes. A sweet little house.

But you'll have to wait for it.


You get a house

only after marriage.

-You have to be married to have a house?

-Of course.


You know after marriage

you also have kids.


You're still young.

I can't tell you that.

Please. I'm your best friend.


-I swear.

-Don't tell anyone.

When a girl looks at a boy,

and the boy looks back at the girl,

a baby begins to grow inside her.

-Just by looking?

-Yes. Just by looking.

It happened to my sister.

Right after her marriage she told me.



This is why your father

won't let you out of the house.

-It's our secret.


We have to find a solution

to this?Tor Gul' problem.

You're right, we

should find a solution,

but you will have to come back.

You are the head of our tribe.

These matters can't

be solved without you.

I wish I had better news for you.

But there is a huge security problem,

everything and everyone is searched.

I barely made it here.

Somehow, this fire of revenge

has to be extinguished.

-Salaam, Uncle Shehbaz.

-Zainab, my child, how are you?

I'm fine.

Did you bring something for me?

How could I possibly forget?

-A doll, just like you.

-Thank you!

Zainab, go. Go inside the house.

She's a kid. Let her be happy.

What we will learn today?

Today we'll learn

the words?put' and?but.'

Open your copy.

-Did you check the previous work?

-It was excellent.

I gave you a star.

Even your writing was good.

Write?P' here.

Good. Just make it longer.

Now the other word is?but.' Write?B.'

?B' is the one with two bellies, right?

Exactly. Now write?U.'

-Like this?


Now write?T.' Good.

So this is?but.'

-Like this?but.'

-No, no.

The teacher explained it,

but I don't remember now what it means.

-It is simply?but'...

-You don't know what it means?

-So what did you learn in class?

-I will ask my teacher tomorrow.

You don't know the meaning

and you're teaching me.

Now what was that?

Do it slowly.

It's not?putt,' it's?put.'

But you just told me...

-No, it was for the other one.

-Is it not the same?


-This is the same one, look!


This is confusing!

Listen, it's time for my TV drama.

Let's watch that first.

Alright, but promise one thing.

We will come back

to complete this.

-Not this, something else.

-No, the same one!

Or else I will scold

you like my teacher.

-Very well done.

-It's all good now.


Get lost!

Hurry up.

How are you, Ghorzang Khan?


Remove his blindfold.


Peace be with you, Daulat Khan.

And also with you.

Have a seat.

-You didn't have a problem coming here?

-No, not at all.

I meant they didn't

inconvenience you, did they?

Today I came to meet

you for one reason.

The revenge between

us has killed my sons.

Time has come

to find a solution.

Daulat Khan...

seven of your men got killed.

And in return...

ten of my men got killed.

You know very well,

we take an eye for an eye.

It is a matter of honor.

With all due respect,

with these hands, I have bathed

the dead bodies of my four sons.

And with these same hands,

I buried all four of them.

Today, three more of your men died.

Tomorrow, five more of ours will die.

This revenge will not stop for centuries!

Yesterday, we were friends.

Today, we are enemies.

Daulat Khan...


it's hard to tell friends from enemies.

In our region,

we have plenty of useless leaders

and politicians!

But things are about to change

with me in power.

Daulat Khan,

the mother of all wars
