In September 2003, Palestinian-Australian filmmaker, Sherine Salama tried everything, to get an interview with Yasser Arafat. As Salama ingratiates herself with Arafat's aides and minders, lobbies officials and recruits her own Palestinian friends, she builds a compelling detail of daily life in the compound. In October 2004, she filmed the last interview given by Yasser Arafat. A month later he died.
