Growing up in the heart of the Black Civil Rights resistance, Rice came of age amidst violence and racial oppression; "it was awful", she recalls. It was her "unusual relationship" with Republican candidate George Bush that was to skyrocket her career. Following the attacks on September 11th 2001, she endorsed "enhanced interrogation techniques" such as water boarding in an attempt to obtain information that would justify an invasion, driven blindly forward by Bush's ideals. "I think it was recognized by Condoleezza Rice that they had made a pact with the Devil." From the little girl who wanted to be a concert pianist to the woman accused of war crimes, this doc is a startling portrait of a life led by opportunism at any cost.
