Logline: A beautiful young woman returns to Baghdad from abroad after the fall of Saddam Hussein and has to confront a harsh reality and shattered dreams.

Synopsis: Fatima is an intimate film that tackles how sensitive human beings react to the ominous reality of war and destruction. Using a poetic approach, the film subtly brings the viewer into the psyche of the main character, a 26-year old woman who returns to Baghdad to reunite with her family and fiancée, and to follow her dream of becoming a childcare specialist.

Tensions progressively escalate as she finds both the city and her family deeply affected by the violence. Her fiancée's tragic death sends her into a spiral of grief and desperation that take her to a final decision by the Tigris river.

In face of absolute lack of hope, will she choose life or death?
