An afternoon football game unexpectedly turns into a gruesome bloodbath in this revenge tale based on an actual 2007 incident. Militants gun down a group of children playing in an otherwise quiet Baghdad suburb, causing the entire community to turn on itself. Akram, the brother of one young victim, seeks vengeance.

Regan Hall
New Zealand-born British director Regan Hall has been known for his dynamic and collaborative fashion films for clients such as Dolce&Gabbana, Dazed & Confused and Swarovski. He has now taken a dramatic departure with his first major short film, 3 Hours. Regan's goal was to create an emotive and engaging drama to show the human side of war. The film was shot in Jordan, in Arabic, with an all-Iraqi cast. He self-financed the project and gradually drew major industry support, including the team behind Oscar winner The Hurt Locker. Regan graduated from film school in New Zealand and started his career as an editor in Wellington, home to Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop. He moved to the UK in 2000 and soon after started his own production company, producing and directing films for the advertising, fashion, and music industries. He is now hard at work developing his slate of feature film projects.
