When his Uncle Hizkel is arrested, Kabi and his family face an uncertain future as do all Jews living in Baghdad. It is 1950 and each member of Kabi’s circle has a different dream: his mother wants to return to the Moslem quarter where she felt safer; his father wants to emigrate to Israel and grow rice there; Salim, his headmaster, wants Arabs and Jews to be equal, and Abu Edouard just wants to care for his adored doves.
