A young Kurdish boy living on the Syrian/Turkish border in the 1980s, close friends with his Jewish neighbors, discovers the absurdity of war and the cruelty of hatred in this affectionate autobiographical feature. Encountering the edicts of a dictatorship he cannot fathom, our young hero clings to his humanity in this sly satirical tale of innocence, solidarity, and love. Swiss-Kurdish director Mano Kahlil brings humor, warmth, candor, and charm to a story based on memories from his own turbulent childhood. VIEW THE TRAILER.
