Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Secret serpents, devilish demons, mysterious magicians — the folk tales of Iraq are filled with otherworldly creatures, enchantment, and earthy humor.

Meticulously researched, these stories reveal the true, traditional heart of Iraq, far removed from today's news headlines.
