The narrative in OUR RIVER…OUR SKY (aka KULSHI MAKOO in Arabic) is set against a background of sectarian violence in the last week of 2006, between Christmas and the Adha Eid.

Sara, a single mother and novelist, shocked into silence by the surrounding violence, has been unable to write one word of fiction. Shortly before the New Year, following unexpected news, Sara and her neighbors brace themselves for an uncertain future while trying to sustain a fragile sense of hope.
