Synopsis

Dana and Zana are two little kids looking for their salvation. The only way they figure out to that is "Superman", after secretly watching bits and pieces of the movie. They are both orphans and homeless, in the Iraqi Kurdistan, under the oppressive regime of Saddam Hussein during the nineties of the last century. Their only hope is to reach the United States of America, and live with their friend "Superman". But how to get their? Surely they miss of all the necessary… They have no money, no passports, and the only means of transportation they've got is a donkey.
