In December, 2006 at the height of the Iraqi War, filmmaker, Jeffrey Kramer journeyed to Amman, Jordan to document the training and graduation of the largest class of Iraqi Police Cadets. Once on the base he is detained and then escorted off the base as a security breach. He eventually is allowed back but before he returns he interviews Iraqi refugees and professional athletes to get an idea of their personal plight and their daily struggle to survive. The Price for Paradise follows personal experiences of individuals, families and reveals a look at Iraqis coping with war in their homeland. The intent of the film is to enlighten American’s about their plight. It is information that we do not get a chance to see by watching the evening news. It portrays Iraqis as proud and dignified people who are trying to survive and rebuild their lives under horrific circumstances. The hope is that the program can serve to build a greater understanding between Americans and Iraqis and effect positive change.
