The last wish of Hayat, a young female suicide bomber, at Baghdad’s Central Train Station, 90 seconds before she may do the unthinkable...
When I look at my previous films, I recognize that I have made bold statements on issues. Now, I challenge myself to tell a simple story of love in a more artistic way that will put forward controversial themes of how my culture perceives women. Inshallah, with this film we can challenge and change some of those perceptions.
