In the heart of war-torn Iraqi Kurdistan, amid destruction and despair, a group of young men defies the odds by founding the region’s first-ever gentlemen’s club — “Mr. Erbil.” Their mission goes far beyond leisurely pursuits, as they attempt to change the very fabric of Iraqi society through style, behavior, and a sense of community. Combining western fashions with traditional Kurdish elements, the club members stand out from the crowd; they attract admiration and criticism alike.
Through the stories of the club members, join us on a journey to discover how fashion, courage, and determination can break down barriers, unite people across cultures, and revive a sense of hope among those who live in darkness. From the bustling streets of Erbil to the fashion capitals of Europe, this documentary offers a unique window into Iraq, as seen through the eyes of men who share a common dream: a better future for themselves, their families, and their country.
