From 1980 until 1988, the Iran-Iraq War was one of the most brutal conflicts to devastate the region.

 My Enemy, My Brother is a feature length documentary about the real-life story of two former enemies from the Iran-Iraq war who become blood brothers for life. Meeting in Vancouver 30 years after Zahed, an Iranian child soldier saves Najah, a wounded Iraqi soldier's life, they are about to embark on an emotional journey back to Iran and Iraq for the first time in 20 years. Their journey takes them into the heart of present-day conflicts in a region ravaged by war and ISIS. Their quest is a surprising affirmation of redemption and humanity.

An incredible and humane story that will leave no one unmoved.
