The Mother of Kamal

1948 - the slums of Baghdad. A working-class Jewish mother, Um-Kamal, finds her sons arrested by the feared and loathed Secret Police. Inexplicably, the younger brother gets imprisoned, while the older, Kamal, is set free. Rumour and intrigue ensue, and Um-Kamal is drawn into the orbit of the Communist Party, risking all to save her sons and hold her fragmenting family together. Decades later, conflicting family histories and narratives emerge as Kamal faces a reckoning with the truth of what really happened following that night in the cells in Baghdad and its impact on the family across time and space.
