A broken family lives uneasily within the gated courtyard of a dilapidated Baghdad house. Hard up for money, the family must live with a sullen and imperious boarder, a contract killer. Iraqi filmmaker Oday Rasheed’s second feature gorgeously captures contemporary Baghdad’s moody interior and stunned atmosphere, echoed in performances by a formidable cast who suggest unexpected resilience in the wake of catastrophe.
