1988. Though Iraq is on the brink of bankruptcy, Baghdad is jubilant in victory after the war with Iran. Uday celebrates in a nightclub by getting drunk and firing a gun into the crowd. As Kuwait's upsurge in oil output challenges Iraqi prosperity, a family lunch reveals fractures in Saddam's household, including paranoia that an insider might overthrow him. News spreads that Saddam has taken Samira as a second wife, with grim ramifications. As his family issues continue to grow, Kuwait drives Iraq toward war--and Saddam leads his army into 'the mother of all battles.' Written by
