In 1991, the Kurdistan region was considered a safe zone by the UN, and many European countries only granted refugee status to those coming from unsafe zones.

The breakdown of a boat motor propels the retelling of an indigenous ancestral story of sweat, land, and spirits through a series of surreal re enactments by extended family members. The story unfolds across overlapping points of views that intertwine the pressures from the settler colonial state, the Christian faith, indigenous ancestry, and their day to-day realities.
