Synopsis The border between Iraq and Turkey is the land of Kurdish refugees. That’s where the quiet One-Armed boy, his sister and her child have run away to. There’s also Kak Stellite, a pragmatic, though deep-down altruistic, hustler who possesses two invaluable skills: a few phrases in English and some rudimentary notions in satellite dish installation. This archaic world gets news from the outside through the screen, the rumours of impending war: USA is about to invade Iraq.
