Synopsis

After the screening, join Central marketing manager Milana Vujkov for a discussion about the film. After the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003 Fakhir, a father of eight and Major in the Iraq armed forces, goes on a mission to disarm the thousands of mines laid across Mosul. Shown via home movie footage shot by his fellow troops and discovered by his son years later, the videos show how Fakhir manages to disarm thousands of mines with just a simple knife and a pair of wire clippers. Despite many near-misses Fakhir knows he cannot stop while there are still mines in the city because the innocent people will pay the ultimate price.
