A novel about Iraqi diaspora through the biography of a mother and her daughter, both doctors. When medical physicians are targeted to be killed, the eighty-years-old mother and her daughter are forced to immigrate from Iraq to faraway Canada, land of the so-called red Indians. The mother feels alienated, culture-shocked and longs to return home to be buried next to her husband. One of her grandchildren finds her consolation: he establishes a virtual cemetery on the internet for remains of Iraqi families living in diaspora, thus creates a community for the dispersed, known in the Iraqi vernacular as the “Tashari”.
