Since the US-British war on Iraq stopped all entertainment activities in Egypt with singers and actors refusing to carryon their daily schedules, everyone watched in agony to see what the outcome of the ruthless war would be, and at that point Nadia decided to seclude herself from the outside world and will remain at home, in order to document every event.
Nadia wanted to document all the events in Iraq to create a full detailed documentary on the destruction and suffering brought on by the enemy. Scenes of innocent civilians and children being slaughtered, homes destroyed, historical sites eliminated, and basic rights broken was chosen as the main themes in the documentary to show the world the negative impact a war has. -Albawaba.com
