For several months, the director filmed a group of Iraqis, mostly members of his family, in their expectation of the war; the start of U.S. strikes on Baghdad, the American invasion and its consequences.

Our take

One of the crucial films about America’s invasion of Iraq, Abbas Fahdel’s long, completely engrossing and deeply personal saga provides an essential perspective. In our critic’s words, it is “unprecedented in that it shows the daily reality of those on the receiving end of our humanitarian wars.”
