Synopsis

Zahraa, a young Iraqi girl, watches her peers walk to school in the morning and dreams of joining them. Orphaned and terribly poor, however, she cannot afford a uniform. To make ends meet, Zahraa and her brother, Hassan, scour a garbage dump for goods to sell. Is a better life possible? Steeped in realism, ‘Kingdom of Garbage’ gives voice to the children displaced by the ongoing conflict in Iraq.
