On March 20th five years ago, the UK and US went to war. Thousands of Iraqis died, millions were displaced, and cities were practically destroyed. But why and how? Now a groundbreaking drama goes behind scenes of the countdown to the Iraq war. Part thriller, part political drama, 10 Days to War has a relentless ticking-clock intensity, with all events unfolding in real time. From Tony Blair selling the idea of war to his sceptical party and cynical public and the American marketing of Ahmed Chalabi as the George Washington of Iraq to the shock and awe of the first strike, this distinctive and compelling film lifts the lid on the back-room bullying and gripping human dramas played out privately in the corridors of power.
