Before Dawn follows the life of a young man and his sister through their adult lives under the rule of Saddam and his policy of Kurdish genocide. Events – Anfal, the 1988 Halabja Chemical attack and other atrocities including the control of everyday life – are seen from the level of personal experience, to create a moving and thought-provoking portrait that is more immediate than any documentary.
