A documentary about the recently assassinated Benazir Bhutto who was a polarising figure in the Muslim world. Following in her father’s footsteps as a pillar for democracy, Bhutto was expected to dominate Pakistan’s 2008 elections but the assassination sent Pakistani politics into turmoil. This major event sent shock waves throughout the world and transformed her from political messiah into a martyr for the common man.
