Based on interviews with Saddam's oldest daughter we see the last years of Saddam's rule i Iraq. Saddam's tribe and family rules and abuses the country as if it were their private property. People are murdered for no reason and they indulge in an opulent lifestyle other Iraqis can only dream of. Often the story we are told by her is in stark contrast to what's shown in the film. She has a very positive image of her father. Although the actor doesn't look like Saddam it's still very convincing and well acted and gives us an interesting look into the life of a dictator. When you've seen this you don't need to question the reason for invading Iraq.
