This documentary is about the life and work of seven Iraqi artists living in exile in Italy. They are a mixed group of Arabs and Kurd. In the film they talk about the situation which made them decided to live outside their own country, about their experience of exile and their struggle to survive both materially and spiritually.
The common fact that brings these artists together is the solitary expressions of the human concern through medium of arts. Although their styles differ a great deal from each other, they are united by an identity defining them as Iraqi artists in exile.
