As Sara stands on the cusp of committing an unthinkable act, an unforeseen and awkward encounter gives her the opportunity to witness the potential consequences of her destructive action. But is this a second chance or an admission of guilt?

A movie that doesn't represent Iraq nor views terrorism in Iraq correctly
The movie is very bad, it doesn't represent Iraq and it deceives the non-Iraqis, giving them a wrong image about what Iraq is and how things are going there. The movie is supposed to give life to the dead Iraqi cinema (I've never seen any good Iraqi movie before), but in fact the movie added nothing but failure to the dead Iraqi cinema. Conversations, scenes, places, relationships between people all of these things were made in a way that makes them totally not belonging to Iraq or Iraqis. The terrorist was very simulated and her arguments wasn't really representing the terrorists, the actress seems like a beginner, foolish pale expressions with a steady sound tone, even her Iraqi accent was very bad, not because she's not Iraqi but because she was a poser. Scenes like women walking with Dervishs, a musical band playing in the street, a terrorist woman but without hijab (there's no Hijab in the movie, I don't know why? Even though it supposed to be that at least 70% of the women are wearing hijab). The conversations are too simulated. The movie presented only a realistic way of swearing, but he did everything else wrong and it presented the message of the terrorist in a very bad way. I hope that non Iraqis can understand that this movie doesn't belong to us, I feel ashamed for paying cinema entry fee to see this movie and I promise myself not to try to see another Iraqi movie in the next 10 years. I hope you didn't get deceived by this movie and I will try to publish this warning as much as I can.
