PARADIES! PARADIES!

Kurdwin Ayub accompanies her father Omar to the Autonomous Region Kurdistan in northern Iraq, from where the family fled to Austria many years ago. She tries to fathom why her father desperately wants to buy a second apartment that is only a stone’s throw away from the IS territories. Yet despite all the conflicts, construction is booming. Omar too wants to invest in a utopian future – be it out of spite for the Viennese tax office, out of homesickness or out of newly awakened patriotism.
