Rural Iraq, during the war against the 'Islamic State'. A pregnancy out of wedlock seals a young girl's fate. Before and after death, the voices of each family member rise and fall, between fragments of the legend of Gilgamesh and the mythical voice of the Tigris River, who has seen it all. Uncompromising yet compassionate, May the Tigris Grieve for You reaches into the heart of a society ruled by fathers and sons, a world in which life matters less than honour.
