Haibat and six of her grandchildren are making furnaces (tandoor ovens) under the burning sunlight of Karkuk, but they dont have any bread to eat themselves! Haibat's son became depressed and died due to poverty and lack of employment. While her city is one of the biggest sources of oil worldwide, Haibat and her six grandchildren are trying to make ends meet in this city of oil. This vicious circle goes round.
