Two brothers embark on a journey from Kurdistan to America to meet Superman... on a donkey.

With stunning cinematography providing a spectacular living backdrop, director Karzan Kader’s upbeat tale of brotherly love, innocence and determination is energetically brought to life by his endearing young stars, Zamand Taha and Sarwar Fazil. Bringing light to increasingly dark subject matter, their effervescent relationship provides the film’s charming heart and soul.

    It was first a short film called Bekas that they've made into a feature length film :)
