Michael is the son of a Danish diplomat whose father was killed in Lebanon and wants to follow the same professional path as his father. He is taken over by a certain Pasha who tells him from the very beginning that he knew his father and took the impassive wand under his wing, instructing him how to handle the political world and not only. Michael’s predecessor was killed in a car accident in Iraq, but no matter what Pasha says, the subject of “accident” deserves to be thorough. Pasha handles the Petrol and Food program, whose business was to relocate Saddam’s money to social programs for the Iraqi population. But with so much money and resources, a lot of dubious people want to get their hands on it and are willing to do anything for that.
