This is an alternative take on Iraq during the 1990s. Rather than focusing on the Saddam Hussein era, the film instead follows the plight of two brothers who lived in the Kurdish region of the country. The two homeless youngsters see Superman in the cinema which inspires them to one day emigrate to America. One brother creates a list in order to facilitate their journey to the States, while his younger sibling creates a list of people that Superman should punish. Witness the journey of these two memorable individuals as they chase their dream.
