A spotlight on the inhabitants of the palm groves and marshlands of Basra, Iraq. As Basra reels with destruction and death, the terrified Ramzi and Ahlam cut a path through the devastated city, fleeing from soldiers. Their story is just one amongst a collection of disparate tales about characters from Basra's underworld. Longlisted for the 2016 International Prize for Arabic Fiction (IPAF).
