Synopsis:

The American Dream is waiting just around the corner.

Coming-of-age drama set in early ‘90s Iraq during Saddam Hussein’s regime, following two young homeless Kurdish brothers who decide to journey to America after being inspired by Richard Donner’s Superman. But first, they need passports, money and a donkey called Michael Jackson.

The story is expanded from Sweden-based filmmaker Karzan Kader’s own 2010 award-winning short film.
