In this classic love story featuring passion, jealousy and murder, and set in pre-World War II Iraq, Farida, a Jewish woman and cabaret singer, struggles for survival and her freedom in a world on the edge of upheaval and on which falls the dark shadow of war.
She needed no one. She did not even have the need to dream. She was free. She was alone. The balance sheet was satisfactory. The sun would rise.
