Time Out says
It's hard to imagine any documentary being able to shed new light on the chaos
in Iraq, but director Maysoon Pachachi found herself in a unique position. After
35 years of living abroad, she and her 80-year-old father returned to their
homeland so he could head the committee responsible for drafting the country's
temporary constitution. Pachachi interviews everyday citizens about what they've
been through, both under Saddam Hussein's regime and during the U.S. occupation.
It's a side of Iraqi life that few foreigners have ever seen, and it's at once
brutal, depressing and inspiring.
