Bruno (8) finds it very interesting that his father, Daan (35), routinely wants to shave h...展开is beard and head before he leaves on a dangerous military mission in a desert country far away. When Daan offers his son to shave him, Bruno happily goes at it, while asking his father about his job and in the meantime trying not to cut him. Along with this intimate way of saying goodbye, we see what will happen to Daan on his mission through Bruno playing with his toy soldiers.
