Working alone in Iraq over 8 months, American filmmaker laura Poitras follows Iraqi phusician Dr. Riyadh - father of 6 and Sunni political candidate - for an unforgettable journey into the heart of war-ravaged Iraq in the months leading up to the January 2005 elections. An outspoken critic of the occupation, Riyadh is equally passionate about building democracy in Iraq. Yet all around him, he sees only chaos, as his waiting room fills each day with patients suffering the physical and mental effects of ever-increasing violence.
