Twenty-something activist and anarchist Aureliano (Vinicio Marchioni) travels to Iraq as the assistant director on a film about the Italian military peace mission. Not long after he arrives, Aureliano emerges as the sole survivor of a suicide bombing, and finds himself an unlikely hero.

Presenting a different take on the war in Iraq than American films, 20 Cigarettes is one of only a handful of European films to explore this subject matter.
