This drama set in 1990 Iraqi Kurdistan charts the efforts of a pair of homeless orphans to travel to America on their donkey - named Michael Jackson, to meet Superman, having glimpsed him through a hole in the wall at their local cinema. Once they get there he can solve all their problems, bring their parents back to life and punish everyone that has been mean to them, with Saddam Hussein top of the list. Their journey will inevitably be perilous and doomed to failure, but this beautifully shot film chronicles their journey in warm, affecting fashion, while also detailing the everyday consequences of war from a child’s perspective.
