How do you prevent your childhood trauma from becoming your child's trauma?

Twenty years ago, filmmaker Wiam Al-Zabari fled Baghdad in the middle of the night with his family. His father was waiting for them in the Netherlands. Ever since then, no one in the family has spoken about it. Now that Wiam is a father himself, he is confronted with his past life in Iraq.
