Saddam Hussein is overthrown and unrest rules the day. Two Kurdish soldiers stumble upon a five-year-old, utterly alone. While Asad feels sorry for him, Rashid refuses to help, especially as the boy is called Saddam. Eventually they overcome their prejudice and set out to look for his parents. When their vehicle is stolen they continue on foot, through a country scarred by hate and prejudice.
