No Name is loosely based on a news story of a young woman, a freedom fighter from Kurdistan. The main character’s journey through life - and love - towards death takes us, feelingly, into the violent clashes between contemporary nation states and peoples subsumed unwillingly within these. In 2023, it is strongly resonant of horrific current events in Ukraine and Iran.
