In a Kurdish refugee camp on the eve of the War in Iraq, a boy's ambitions and joys contrast sharply with the horrors around him. A young boy's adventures in scavenging is better than some work in clearing land mines, leaving some disfigured and others emboldened. Their camp remains impoverished and neglected, but they await word of an American invasion.
