Their private conflicts and passions are set against the wider drama of events leading up to the overthrow of prime minister Abd al-Karim Qasim and the rise of the Baath party in Iraq. Relationships between generations, social groups, and genders is dramatized with a mixture of humor, bitter irony, and compassion.
