Set in Iraq in 2006, this deeply moving drama follows Sara, a writer and mother, and her community as they struggle against a backdrop of sectarian violence.

Through bombings and “disappearances”, everyday humanity persists – lunch is eaten, children go to school, books are read.

A story of hope, love and solidarity, the film offers us a viewpoint rarely seen – that of ordinary people in Baghdad caught up in terrifying circumstances.
