“Not Me” is a story of struggle and survival, tolerance and coexistence in the midst of the Iraq War. The film centers on an American soldier, Mike, and an Iraqi fighter, Mohammad. One fights for God, the other for democracy. They hate each other, but in order to survive, they have to work together. Trapped in a minefield and chased by the Iraqi and American forces, the tension escalates as they fight to live.
