A documentary produced in 2010 delves into the life of Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan’s assassinated former prime minister. She twice clinched victory as prime minister the first woman to occupy such a high post in any Muslim country and was on a third run for power when she was killed in a gun and suicide attack.

Not satisfied with outlining her compelling successes, including restoring democracy to Pakistan, the documentary also tackles the many accusations of corruption that marred her name and that of her husband, current President Asif Ali Zardari.

Eerily enough, it is Bhuttos voice itself that narrates the film, culled from recordings for her autobiography.

It is a family dominated by her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, a former president and prime minister hanged by a military regime. Benazir’s two brothers were assassinated.
