Description:
  After Saddam Hussein's loss of power in Iraq, childhood friends Hussein and Alan decide to produce a film about the 'Al Anfal' Kurdish genocide. But making a film in post war Kurdistan is not easy. And the most difficult task seems to be finding a leading actress. Suddenly they find her: Sinor, young and beautiful - and passionate about their project. But she cannot decide on her own. Her cousin and her uncle, his father, control her fate. As they run out of money and time, Hussein and Alan sacrifice everything to keep on filming. Then, in a tragic twist, Hussein is injured during the shooting of the final scene. The biggest question of all occurs: will the film ever reach the screen? A tragicomic view on film making in a war affected country.
