Samir 2019 108'

London, shortly before Christmas: The strong-willed architect AMAL is on the run from her ex-husband and works at the Abu Nawas café. The café belongs to a Kurdish activist and is a popular meeting place for Iraqi exiles.
Her friends, the poet TAUFIQ and the IT specialist MUHANAD, come by almost every day. Taufiq has been looking after his nephew NASSEER since his brother's death, but has to watch powerlessly as he increasingly changes under the influence of the radical Islamist preacher YASSIN and begins to rebel against him as an atheist.
Muhanad, on the other hand, left Baghdad only recently to escape the threat that awaits homosexuals there. But even here and in front of his friends, he does not dare to openly admit to his English lover.
The small community is put in danger when Amal's ex-husband turns up in London and at the same time seduces Sheikh Yassin Taufiq's nephew Nasseer to take action against the "godless" in Abu Nawas Café.
