My Enemy, My Brother is the real life story about two former enemies who become blood brothers for life: Zahed Haftlang was an Iranian boy who ran away from home to join the army. Najah Aboud was a 19-year old Iraqi who had been conscripted to fight in the war, leaving behind his wife and son. Both men fought in the Iran-Iraq war where Zahed found Najah critically injured in a bunker and decided to risk his own life to save him. Because of Zahed, Najah’s life was spared. Their lives diverged and they didn't see nor hear of one another for 20 years, until one fateful day.

“What strikes me is the humanity of these two men. From their example we see that, even at the worst of times, the best in people may be revealed. This www.fathomfilmgroup.com 5 www.myenemymybrother.com movie is fundamentally optimistic. And we need this optimism, otherwise, what remains, is complete despair. And we need hope, because hope is the necessary motive for action, progress and improvement.”
– Stéphane Dion, Ambassador to Canada for Germany
