(An Iraqi house, a poor one; there is nothing but eroded walls, worn curtains, remains of some furniture and a TV that has nothing on except news about the events in Tunisia and Egypt, a revolution that is known as the Jasmine Revolution. To the corner of the stage, there is a wooden cart that is full of old wilted vegetables. The sense of poverty and need controls the space. HANOON enters, carrying a can of fuel (petrol or gasoline). He is a middle aged man in worn clothes.)

HANOON.                 (Shouting) Leave me alone, I said… You bitch, leave me or I’ll burn myself.
