The first film to be filmed in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein is set a few months before that event took place, as a handful of orphaned children try and survive in a Kurdish refugee camp. Just trying to get by is a challenge in a place without running water or electricity, but these children survive by finding and trading the deadly landmines that the ground is littered with. Satellite is a young entrepreneur who mays his way by selling electrical goods and by installing satellite dishes to that people can receive the news they are desperate for. One-armed Hyenkov and Agrin look after their little brother Risa as best they can, until the trauma of what they have been through threatens to overwhelm them.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
