Sean McAllister looks at the new Iraq through the eyes of Samir Peter, once the country\'s most famous pianist. When the Americans came to Iraq, it was a dream to Samir, but the interviews he gave against Saddam resulted with death threats and now he wants to join his estranged wife in the USA. His grown-up daughter and son Fadi are not interested in going with him. They hate America for what has happened to their country.
