In the dressing room of the first lingerie store in the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq, women regain their sensuality and sexuality after times of war and oppression.
Shapol Majid, a Kurdish Iraqi woman from the Netherlands, opened the first lingerie store in her native town of Suleimaniyah. The shop serves as a meeting place for women in the region. These women have been marked by war and oppression and are alienated from their bodies due to illness, injuries and the conservative sexual morals. Which effect can this lingerie store have on their lives? Will the lingerie, so close to the skin, act as a balm to ease the pain?
