We’re in Northern Iraq, in the area known as “the triangle of death.” As the American forces withdraw, we meet Nori Sharif, 36, a male nurse and father of four. Hope to rebuild and restore peace is replaced by a different kind of war; one in which you can’t tell friend from foe and where no atrocity seems to be off limits.

The director follows Nori and his family over a period of five years. Through people he introduces us to, their compelling stories, and his own everyday life, we get a unique depiction of the lasting consequences of war as well as important background for the current refugee crisis. The film recently won first prize at the prestigious documentary festival IDFA. As the jury said: “There are those films which are wonderful to see and there are films that the world needs to see. The film we chose is both.”
