From the mountains of Kurdistan in the north to the Shatt al-Arab river in the south, and all along the banks of the Tigris and the Euphrates, Iraq faces an array of social, economic and political challenges, ongoing security threats and environmental threats.

This series explores the hopes, the uncertainty and the disappointments of Arabs and Kurds in a country torn apart by decades of conflict. These are the stories of the Mesopotamian swamps that once constituted the wealth of the ancient Sumerian and Assyrian civilizations, but are now threatened by drought. Of the song of Najmadin from the top of his Kurdish village. Of families harassed by ISIS and young people searching for a future. Of the ravaged alleys of old Mosul, the Peshmerga, and the religious fervor in Najaf and Karbala. Of ancient cities under threat. After the storm, what remains of the Land of the Two Rivers?
