The second Gulf War broke out in March 2003.
Ten years later, few know that the conflict leads to the settlement of around 100,000 Iraqi citizens in the United States.
From Boston to San Diego, this interactive documentary unveils the intimate wounds shared by former enemies and their wishes for the future.

An interactive documentary written and directed by Claire Jeantet and Fabrice Catérini
