    Baghdad, 30 December, 2006. Sara, an unassuming young woman, enters Baghdad’s central train station with sinister intentions. On the edge of committing a destructive and heinous act, Sara finds her plans are drastically altered, complicated by an unwanted and awkward encounter with Salam, a self-assured and flirtatious salesman. In an unfortunate twist of fate, Salam becomes a hostage in Sara’s confused and deluded master plan to blow up the station. Caught up in the chaos of a situation he cannot begin to comprehend, Salam desperately tries to understand Sara’s motives and to sway her decision.
