The film portrays the existence of a Kurdish community situated on the border between Iraq and Turkey during the American invasion of Iraq. In tandem with their efforts to install satellite antennas for the refugee camp residents, Cocksatellite assumes the role of overseeing a group of village children tasked with clearing mines in the vicinity. This dynamic shifts with the arrival of Agrin and her brother to the village. In the backdrop of the Iraqi forces’ assault on Halabja, the film highlights the deeply distressing event where Agrin experienced assault by the soldiers who also killed her parents. The film’s primary thematic focus revolves around the psychological aftermath and strain stemming from these traumatic incidents.
