Synopsis

Under the oppressive regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraqi Kurdistan, two homeless orphaned brothers are inspired to travel to America after they see 'Superman' in the city's first cinema. They have no passports and no money – and their only means of transport is a donkey called Michael Jackson. With all the odds against them, they set out toward their dream, discovering on their journey that perhaps they are superheroes themselves.
