    Plot Outline:

    A chilling vision of the House of Saddam Hussein comes to life through the eyes of the man who was forced to become the double of Hussein's sadistic son.

    Plot: Bagdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought – but for a price. This is Uday Hussein's world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on. When army lieutenant Latif Yahia, is summoned to Saddam's palace, he is faced with an impossible request – to be Uday's 'fiday' – his body double, or have his family condemned to death. In a world entrenched in betrayal and corruption knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life or death for Latif, as he battles to escape from his forced existence.

    Trivia: There are 1 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Writer/director Joe Cornish was inspired to make this film after actually being mugged in real-life (much in the same way as portrayed in the film). He noticed his young assailants were as scared as he was, and started researching their lives.
