With a sadness to his voice and darkness to his face, 42-year-old Haider tells the story of his life in captivity during the 1991 Iraqi rebellion. Saddam Hussein had but recently deserted the war and left the war-stricken nation at its knees. While the past may be gloomy and filled with pain, Haider keeps positive and hopes that his children will lead a safe and dignified life here in Denmark.
