The KingdomThe movie explores conflict in the Middle East, specifically Saudi Arabia. It is loosely based on the true life events of an investigation by the FBI into a 1996 terrorist attack on the Khobar Towers in Dhahran. The Kingdom begins with an attack on a housing compound for US citizens working in Riyadh. During this attack, an FBI agent is killed along with hundreds of other US citizens, including women and children. The attack prompts an investigation by the FBI who sends a special team to investigate the bombing and catch the people responsible. While in Riyadh, the team is faced with obstacles caused by cultural differences as well as other things. The FBI team has only five days to complete their mission and must quickly overcome all obstacles, as they themselves become the main target of the terrorist cell responsible for the bombing. This movie gives an insight on both sides of the coin of what terrorism does to the countries, the communities and families involved.
