In 2003, Saudi Arabia witnessed the worst wave of terrorism in its history, as Al Qaeda launched a determined campaign to destabilize and topple the Saudi government.
In the course of its fightback, the Kingdom’s security services uncovered a treasure trove of home video material, shot by the terrorists themselves.
This ground-breaking documentary, which broke all ratings records in the Middle East, uses this amateur video material, along with intimate interviews with the men on the ground, to tell the true story of Osama bin Laden’s attempt to take control of Arabia.
