Uday Hussein forces one of his classmates, Iraqi soldier Latif Yahia, to serve as his body double during the heyday of his father's rule over the country. Although Latif initially refuses the role, his family is threatened and he is imprisoned until he agrees to serve as a political decoy for Saddam Hussein's playboy son. An attempt is made on Latif's life while he is posing as Uday, and he ultimately escapes, only to have his father's life threatened if he doesn't return to Iraq. Latif eventually does sneak back into the country, but only on a mission to murder Uday, who has become extremely violent and sadistic. Latif manages to wound Uday, disfiguring his genital region, and he is able to escape from Iraq.
