From the rubble-strewn streets of US-occupied Baghdad, the scavenger Hadi collects human body parts and stitches them together to create a corpse. His goal, he claims, is for the government to recognize the parts as people and give them a proper burial. But when the corpse goes missing and reports stream in of a horrendous-looking criminal who, though shot, cannot be killed, Hadi realises he has created a monster. Frankenstein in Baghdad captures with white-knuckle horror and black humour the surreal reality of a city at war.
