Description: Soon after the 2003 Iraq war, filmmaker Maysoon Pachachi returns to Baghdad after 35 years. She accompanies her father, 80-year-old Adnan, who has returned to head a committee drafting a temporary Iraqi constitution and Bill of Rights. We follow this tortuous process, with its arguments over wording changes demanded by Washington or compromises to satisfy sectarian interests. Moving between the political sphere and everyday life on the streets, this film offers a unique glimpse into the resilience of Iraqis as they struggle to create a new nation in a challenging political climate.
