Maesmak
Sinopsis

Pantelis, a Greek traveller, comes to Rutba to plant an olive tree against war just a few weeks before the invasion of Iraq. William, an English doctor, plunges into his experience of "working with the terminally ill". Youssif, an Iraqi storyteller, journeys back to reminisce on a grim day en route to Baghdad. These three narrations are in motion; where they cross, still pockets of time are created, pockets in which we ask the same question: "What is your name?"
