A young Iraqi journalist sets out to write about Linda Abdul Aziz, who escaped to Israel in the early 70s and whose father, a prominent lawyer, had been kidnapped in Baghdad. The continuous dialogue between Linda and the journalist slowly uncovers the tragic end of her father, as well as that of a whole Jewish community that thrived in Iraq for over 2,000 years.

Passover Context: We are told to remember that we, too, were once a stranger in a foreign land. Shadow in Baghdad tells a story of coming out of darkness from one state of being to another. This is what happens in the exodus from Egypt. The people of Israel not only move physically to a new place, but spiritually become a people. How has a change of places changed who you are? When have you felt like an outsider?
