I think the film covers very important periods in Iraqi history through the story of the National Orchestra, particularly after the 2003 war. It manages to educate the viewer, and still provide him/her with the enjoyment every viewer is seeking. The film also gives the viewer access to the lives and personal experiences of those involved with the orchestra throughout its history, sharing the pain and also the humor. I saw the film with a group of friends, and we were all able (as Iraqis living in Baghdad) to relate to story told through the film, and I believe non-Iraqi viewers would get the chance to remotely experience the events that this critical part of the world has undergone. Well done.
