Director Maysoon Pachachi tells the story of Sara, a single mother and novelist, shocked into silence, at a time of extreme sectarian violence and nightly curfews in Baghdad. She and her neighbours invite us into their everyday lives, as their world fragments and they attempt to renew a fragile sense of hope for a better future.

The evening is presented by Arts Canteen in collaboration with Rich Mix.
