Summary
Documentary providing an intimate portrait of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. The principal focus is Dr. Riyadh (Riyadh al-Adhadh), an Iraqi medical doctor, father of six, and Sunni political candidate who is an outspoken critic of the occupation but passionate about the need to establish democracy in Iraq. As his waiting room is filled daily with patients suffering the physical and mental effects of ever-increasing violence, Dr. Riyadh struggles to understand the tragic contradiction of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and its project to spread democracy through the Middle East
