The Dreams of Sparrows follows Iraqi director Hayder Mousa Daffar and his team of contributing filmmakers as they share their vision of life in Baghdad under the U.S. occupation. The film is dedicated to Sa'ad Fakher, associate producer, killed during the production. This is the historic first feature documentary from the IRAQeye Group, a collaboration between American and Iraqi filmmakers.

After the capture of Saddam, Daffar's search for the truth takes him through all walks of life in Iraq, and finally into the arts and culture of Baghdad, drawing the viewer into powerful encounters with Iraqi painters, writers, and filmmakers. As the film continues, the interviews veer towards the politics of occupation and resistance, concluding with the battle over Falluja and the devastating death of one of the crew members. In somber self interviews made after the production, the filmmakers reveal the dramatic changes in their beliefs caused not only by the situation in Iraq, but also the process of documenting it.
