Kurdistan, the land of exile, the land of hope, is like an X-ray of the Kurdish people and their unknown territory. Once again, and in spite of itself, it finds itself at the center of a geopolitical and humanitarian situation as catastrophic as it is uncertain. The film unfolds like a fragmented portrait, depicting the various issues of these people by exposing the daily reality of different characters illustrating this region’s distress through their situation, their dreams, their beliefs and fears. It is especially through the eyes of Khaled Sulaiman, an Iraqi Kurdish journalist who lived in Montreal for 10 years and is now established in his homeland, that we explore the key issues that drive the region. Through Khaled’s approach, full of hopes and doubts about the future, but also marked by a painful past, the film highlights the different realities and challenges of people who must now fight to maintain their borders facing a new enemy: the Islamic State.
