Haifa Street

Set in Baghdad in 2006, Haifa Street is one of the most dangerous places suffering from the civil war and violence that have plagued the city. When Ahmed is dropped off there on his way to his beloved Suad’s house to ask for her hand in marriage, he gets shot by Salam, an anxious young sniper who is living his own personal hell on a rooftop above. Suad desperately tries to save Ahmed, but Salam prevents anyone from approaching him. All hell breaks loose under the ominous presence of the American occupation.
