Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Dr. Riyadh, an Iraqi medical doctor, father of six and Sunni political candidate, is an outspoken critic of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and equally passionate about the need to establish democracy in his country, arguing that Sunni participation in the January 2005 elections is essential. Yet all around him, Dr. Riyadh sees only chaos, as his waiting room fills each day with patients suffering the physical and mental effects of ever-increasing violence. Dramatically interwoven into the personal journey of Dr. Riyadh is the landscape of the US military occupation, with Australian private security contractors, American journalists and the UN officials who orchestrate the elections.”
