In the wake of the first Gulf War in 1991, United Nations weapons inspectors, backed by the UN Security Council, moved aggressively to uncover and destroy Iraq's hidden arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, and to stop Saddam Hussein's nuclear development program. The film recounts the dramatic confrontations between UN inspectors and the Iraqi regime, and highlights key moments when the Iraqi regime's secrets were exposed. But as time goes on, and the world turns its attention elsewhere, the UNSCOM inspectors find themselves more isolated. The Iraqi regime thwarts ongoing inspections and by the end of 1998 they expel all the inspectors, leaving the world in a quandary about what WMD remnants may remain and whether Saddam might be able to reconstitute a nuclear bomb program.
