At the end of 2003, Adnan was imprisoned for stealing two meters of electric cable. While he awaited trial, two inmates attempted to escape by starting a fire. Over twenty boys were trapped in the blaze. Of the survivors, Adnan was the most badly burned. On a slow path to an incomplete recovery, Adnan's greatest desire is to be released from prison, return to his family and reconcile with this father.
Bonus feature: Displaced : a short documentary by Andrew Berends and Michiel Pilgram. Long after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, thousands and thousnds of internally displaced Kurds still linger in refugee camps, hoping to return to their homes. Throughout the nineties, Saddm Hussein ousted Kurds from their homes and moved Arabs in from the south. This program of 'Arabization' was designed to alter the ethnic mix in favor of Arabs throughout the oil-rich regions of Northern Iraq. The vast majority of these Kurds exercise restraint as they hope to return to their rightful homes...but how long will their patience last?
