In 1969, at the age of 17, Linda Abdel Aziz left Iraq for Israel as the Ba’athist regime rounded up and murdered Jews on charges of spying for Israel and the United States. During that time, her father, a prominent lawyer, disappeared without a trace. Forty years later, Linda uncovers her father’s fate by forging an unlikely alliance with a young Iraqi journalist she must learn to trust. Director Duki Dror, himself the child of Iraqi Jewish refugees who emigrated to Israel, is committed to making the history of Jews in the Arab world known to a wider audience.
