My Longest Dive
Sinai is a paradise for hermits and spiritual seekers. The region attracts people, who consider themselves as Chosen ones. So does Saddam. He wants to become a real-life superhero. But his dream is constantly at risk. It clashes with reality too often.
Are we witnessing a destruction of one’s dream or a rise of a new legend?
Saddam’s charm and commitment got him this far. What is the next step for the natural born showman? What obstacles is he going to face before he becomes the most famous diver in the world?
My Longest Dive is a bitter and dark docu-comedy about an ordinary man going an extra-ordinary length to make a dent in the history of humankind.
