Documentary in which film maker Mark Cousins, who grew up in a war-torn Northern Ireland, follows the children of an Iraqi village. Drawing similarities between his own upbringing and the lives of the young Iraqis, Cousins decided to bring the children some enjoyment by building an outdoor cinema and screening films for them. After getting them interested in the movie world, Cousins supplied the children with cameras so they could shoot their own short films, included in this documentary.
