Baghdad 2003. Saddam Hussein has been thrown out of power and US-led Coalition forces now occupy Iraq.

Muhsin Al-Khafaji, a care-worn but resilient ex-Iraqi Police Inspector no longer recognises the country that surrounds him.

When his eldest and recently estranged daughter, Sawsan, goes missing he makes it his sole aim to track her down and bring her home.

Khafaji’s first important lead into Sawsan’s whereabouts is given to him by his younger daughter, Mrouj, who confesses that Sawsan had been earning dollars translating papers for the Coalition Authority.

Mrouj also gives him the name of Sawsan’s university professor: Zubeida Rashid. But when he doorsteps her at the university, the Professor evades Khafaji’s questioning.

Baghdad Central premieres tonight, Thursday, 8 April at 10.55pm on SBS and On Demand (6 Parts)
