Summary
Set in 1950s Iraq, The Dupes is a stark and stately ... film that traces the destinies of three different men brought together by their dispossession, their dispair and their hope for a better future. The protagonists are Palestinian refugees who are trying to make their way across the border into Kuwait ... concealed in the steel tank of a truck. Each one believes he can make a new life for himself, but as the film title suggests, their flight is no solution.
