Barn Af Irak (Child Of Iraq)
Ala’A Mohsen feels Danish, but his name and appearance prove otherwise. Iraq was once his home, but war and uncertainty forced him to flee the country with his family. As he is ready to rediscover his Iraqi roots, his mother dies. A griefstricken Ala’A buries his mother and perhaps with her, his connection to Iraq.
