Synopsis

In 1988, the Iraqi Ba’ath party murdered and buried 182,000 Kurds in 350 mass graves. One of very few survivors, Faraj climbed out from amongst the dead and was taken to the USA by Human Rights Watch. To raise awareness of the genocidal massacres, he formed the Iraqi Mass Graves Survivors’ group. This artistic and deeply moving film follows his return to Kurdistan, where, with four other survivors, he distributes 1,001 red apples and cloves as symbols of reconciliation and peace for families who had lost dear ones in the massacre.
