Using expert analysis, eyewitnesses and archival photographs, this documentary tells of the period in Iraq that led to the end of one of the oldest Jewish communities. Jews had lived in Iraq since 586 B.C. In 1950, there were 160,000 Jews in Iraq and approximately 40% of the Baghdad population was Jewish. Today only 22 Jews still call Iraq home.

Directed by Carole Basri, an American of Iraqi Jewish origin.
