Synopsis

During the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, a detachment of soldiers is sent to a home to arrest the family who live there. When they arrive, the house has been hurriedly abandoned and not a soul is to be found. The youngest soldier, a photographer, discovers something unexpected – and memories of happier times overwhelm him as he goes about his duties. Beautifully animated and deep with the emotions brought about by conflict, ‘Sandarah’ is a tribute to human benevolence.
