AFTER THE DOWNFALL

Hiner Saleem

Baghdad, April 2003. Saddam Hussein’s regime has been toppled. All Iraqi exiles see this as the best thing that has ever happened to them. Meanwhile in Germany, Azad, a Kurdish exile is glued to the TV screen. He has invited over his Iraqi exile friends to celebrate the event. They have brought plenty of wine and food. As the guests dance, sing and rejoice together, a continuous stream of images is shown on television: thousands of miles away, the Iraqi people too are overwhelmed with joy… However, at Azad’s home long-buried resentments and closeted secrets come out in the open. And the party suddenly turns into a violent settling of scores…
