This raw, affecting documentary, which won three 2008 Webby Awards after debuting as an online series, follows three appealing Baghdad university students who strive to maintain the normal routines of middle-class life amid the mounting chaos of Iraq in 2006.

Preceding it, at 10 p.m., is Heavy Metal in Baghdad, another unvarnished look at 2006 Iraq, which follows the travails of an Iraqi rock band struggling not just to stay together but to survive. At 1:15 a.m. is No End in Sight, a look at the Bush administration’s decisions in the crucial months following the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Thursday, March 19, at 11:30 p.m., Sundance Channel
