Middle East

The film follows nurse Nori Sharif through five years of dramatic change in Iraq. Seen through his eyes, the film offers a unique, immersive account of one of the world’s most dangerous and inaccessible areas — the “triangle of death” in central Iraq. The film moves from stories of hopeful survivors to Nori himself, as continuing conflicts force the remaining population (including most of the hospital staff) to flee. Nori remains until ISIS advances and takes over Jalawla in 2014, and only then turns the camera on himself as he and his family quickly seek safety.
