The Film

Telling the behind-the-scenes story of the January 2005 national elections in Iraq from the perspective of the people who planned, participated in, and boycotted them, this provocative documentary is a sobering look at Iraq two years after the U.S.-led invasion and a testament to the courage of people willing to put their lives on the line for the promise of democracy.
