1988, the conflict between Iraq and Iran is reaching its final stage. The ten-year-old Dileer and his sister Zienee want to watch cartoons on television, but that is easier said than done when bully Malo comes along... Land of the Heroes shows us a day in the life time of the inventive Dileer and Zienee. They collect used weapons and ammunition in an abandoned war zone, so their mother Mirjem can clean and sell them in order to survive. When his task is done, Dileer just wants to watch his cartoons, but images of the war pop up on all channels. He just has to wait until the Saddam propaganda is finished. But when his aunt Zeyneb and Malo come along and Dileer finally takes revenge on bully Malo, he risks to miss his long awaited cartoons.
