The film is shot in Kirkuk and Baghdad in the aftermath of the referendum for the independence of Kurdistan held in September 2017. Although successful, the Iraqi authorities condemned the referendum as unconstitutional and in October 2017 invaded the Kurdish province of Kirkuk.

Unable to reach the region, Kani Marouf asked her Kirkuk-based friend Shaho Abdulkadr to send footage from his city during the invasion. So he filmed Kirkuk, in juxtaposition to Baghdad. Constructing her film using this opaque quality-footage, the filmmaker also speculates on the difficulties of representing such scenario through images.
