In 1991 Kurdwin Ayub fled with her family from Iraq to Austria. Nearly twenty-five years later she accompanies her father on a journey to his former homeland. Ayub’s feature film debut is an intimate, at times whimsical and sobering generational portrait of a generation about rooting and uprooting as the fate of an individual family and at the same time, mass phenomenon of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
