The story takes place in an uncanny landscape where the sky is present in almost every shot as a reminder for the possibilities that life holds: always encountering an obstacle, or a source for something more. The action is set two weeks before the American invasion in Iraq, just before the fall of Saddam Hussein, and the entire film could be read somehow as a protest- mostly as a form of stating the condition of not having alternatives for choices, and not as a material with the aim to provide ideologies.
This film states something about the world we live in and gives us a different perspective than what we may think we know about it from sources which mostly don`t manage to deliver us this filled-with-emotions background. In this monumental landscape lies so much misfortune that hope is sought even in the lost arm of what was the statue of an oppressor, or in a can of kerosene, questioning free will, which in the context of the film is present mostly in decisions that could do harm.
