Director Aida Schlaepfer explores the unanticipated consequences of the ongoing violence in Iraq by speaking with citizens who have suffered at the hands of the growing number of gangs being formed across the country. From reality show singer Wissam Rehman, who was brutally abducted and murdered, to the members of the prosperous Oraibi family, who narrowly escaped a similar fate by staging a daring escape from their ruthless captors, the experiences have left the survivors emotionally scarred and fearing for their lives.
