"Memorias de un perro iraquí" follows the life of Leader, a greyhound residing on the banks of the Tigris who sees the life of a single color: the indescribable tint of war. Memoirs of an Iraqi dog is a tribute to Miguel de Cervantes, describing the cruel reality that comes with dictatorships and violence. This fable also explores the profound dimension of the human being, with its most basic instincts such as hatred, rage, and tyranny, as well as its higher emotions such as compassion, friendship, and love ... Thus, this devastating history humanizes animals and animalizes people in a scenario in which the only hope is freedom, and the past the only place to live.
