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.
Bagdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought – but for a price. This is Uday Hussein’s (Dominic Cooper) world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on. When army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper), 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.
The movie was filmed entirely in and around Radisson Blu Golden Bay Resort and Spa, Golden Bay, Malta.
