On Mothers' Day 1997, the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade, set up a 
display of Iraqi children's paintings inside the National Capital Air 
Show.  This documentary juxtaposes numerous contradictory images and 
interviews from Canada and Iraq.  It raises questions about the use of 
warplanes as family entertainment, the militarisation of our culture 
(particularly children), and the effect of the Gulf War and sanctions on 
families in Iraq.
