    • Synopsis
    • A flashy Ferrari, your wife, your daughter, your blood. Nobody refuses UDAY HUSSEIN and lives to tell the tale. He has a depraved lust for debauchery and corruption, and helps himself to whatever turns him on.
      When the god-fearing lieutenant LATIF YAHIA is summoned to UDAY’S inner sanctum, he is offered the devil's bargain: he must become UDAY's body double or condemn his family to death.
      No longer LATIF YAHIA, he is now UDAY HUSSEIN. As UDAY’s double, LATIF spirals into the giddy excesses of UDAY’s monstrous underworld of self-indulgence and shameless violence; until one day he looks in the mirror and does not recognize the man staring back at him.
      In world built on corruption, murder and deceit, knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life or death for LATIF as he battles to escape the clutches of UDAY and survive his forced existence as The Devil’s Double.
      Based on Latif's own bestselling books, “The Devil's Double” and “I Was Saddam's Son”, The Devil’s Double provides a chilling insight into the House of Saddam through the eyes of the man who knew too much.
