Plot Summary
In a Kurdish refugee camp in 2003, residents await the U.S. invasion of Iraq, hoping for Saddam's defeat but fearing a violent aftermath. Satellite (Soran Ebrahim) organizes children into work gangs, disarming and selling land mines to arms dealers. Satellite falls for Agrin (Avaz Latif), who comes to the camp with one-armed brother Hengov (Hiresh Feysal Rahman) and baby brother Riga (Abdol Rahman Karim). As the invasion starts, Satellite looks for a satellite dish so the camp can watch the war.
