The Danish director Per Fly, who previously made Monica Z (2013), has based his latest film on Michael Soussan's autobiography Backstabbing for beginners. The film tells the story of Michael (Theo James, Divergent) who, after receiving his dream job as a UN lobbyist, is placed in Iraq. There he discovers the game between diplomats, governments and companies behind one of the UN's biggest corruption scandals. In the role of Michael's boss we see Oscar-winning Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, A house of sand and fog).
