The Abbouds: The Reunion
It’s 1999, Iraq and Christians are subject to discrimination, government-sanctioned intimidation and routine violence. Kabil has a jewellery business that has been in the family for many generations, but for Mandean Christians, Iraq is becoming increasingly unsafe. A clandestine, middle-of-the-night journey to Jordan is the beginning of this family’s disintegration. Lack of finances force Kabil to make a most invidious choice: the family must be separated. Fearing for the safety of his eldest daughter, he takes her and his young son and leaves his wife with the other four children, in Jordan. None of them know how long they will be parted or even if they are ever to be re-united. Love, hope, commitment and strength are their allies.
