After the collapse of Saddam's regime in Iraq, childhood friends Hussein and Alan decide to produce a film about the Al Anfal Kurdish genocide. But making a film in post-war Kurdistan isn't easy and turns into an odyssey. The most difficult task seems to be finding the lead actress. Suddenly Sinor appears on the scene: young, beautiful and passionate about the project. But she cannot decide on her own. Her cousin Hiwa and his father, Uncle Hamid, control her life. Something, however, seems to be pushing Sinor to play in the film, even as it becomes clear that the only way to do this is by a marriage-deal with cousin Hiwa whom she doesn't love. As they run out of time and money, Hussein and Alan sacrifice everything to keep filming. Then, in a tragic twist, Hussein is shot during the shooting of the final scene. Now the biggest question of all arises: Will the film ever reach the screen?
