2018. Soon after the demise of ISIS in Northern Iraq, Ghadeer, a young Iraqi journalist comes back from exile in Europe to create with his friends an independent radio station in Mosul. For them, it is the way of participating to their country’s rebirth. Radio One FM shall be the voice of a new generation, one of inclusion, dreaming of a peaceful future. As time passes, Mosul remains in ruins while the rest of the country descends once again into spirals of corruption and violence. Their dream is under threat.
