An in depth look behind the scenes of the Hussain Empire. This film intrigued you with how intense, ridiculous, uncaring, and arrogant Saddam Hussain's son Uday Hussain was while his father ruled over the people of Iraq. The movie begins with Uday reaching into his past and contacting a friend who looks like him. He has his old classmate brought to the palace and tells him that he want him to become his double. This is not an option really for his friend and the process for becoming his double begins right away.

There are financial perks of coarse as this friend will literally have to be able to pass as Saddam Hussains's, partying, drinking, womanizing son. The friend must undergo surgery and have his teeth bucked to look just like the son of Saddam. The movie deepens when The double begins to see just how ruthless and shallow Uday really is. He mistreats everyone and has a nasty habit of driving through the streets and picking up young school girls who he then forces to have sex with him and when he has had his fun with them he kills them and dumps their bodies. No regard for human life what so ever.

A very intense drama unfolds as the double begins to fall in love with Uday favorite woman. She does what he says and serves him in fear for her life. The movie has quite a few twists and turns, there is some violence in the film, and scenes not suitable for young children.

As you watch this movie you begin to feel the pain of the Iraqi people. They are help less under this regime. 

The double decides to take off with his mistress, who is Uday's main girl. They are running away to no avail as Uday and his people have total control over all the cities and streets for many miles. In the end the villain that is Uday eventually gets what is coming to him through the man he has forced to live life through his eyes and perpetrate the fraud of his life.

The double can no longer stand the lifestyle that he has been forced to lead and he still finds that he has a conscious, unlike the man he has been pretending to be. In the end his conscious takes over.
