Kabi and his family face an uncertain future as do all Jews living in Baghdad. It’s 1950 and each member of Kabi’s circle has a different dream: his mother wants to return to the Muslim quarter where she felt safer; his father wants to immigrate to Israel; Salim, his headmaster, wants Arabs and Jews to be equal, and Abu just wants to care for his adored doves. Nissim Dayan’s film – based on the blockbuster novel of the same name – recalls a lost and treasured time, when almost 130,000 Jews lived in Iraq, using the almost-extinct language of Jewish Iraqis – Judea/Arabic.
