Sample AnswersCharacters

  • Idi Amin: the president of Uganda, having seized power from President Apollo Obote in early 1971.Amin suffers from delusions of grandeur, believing that everything he says and thinks is of monumental importance.

  • Garrigan: treats Amin for an injury sustained in an automobile accident, and the president is so impressed that he demands that Garrigan be his personal physician in the capital city of Kampala. At first, Amin has little use for Garrigan and his skills, but soon he calls Garrigan in for a number of minor medical concerns. When Amin is in severe gastric pain, he calls for Garrigan, who proceeds to burp him "like with babies." From this point, a bond develops between the two men.

Sample AnswersGenre: Historical dramaSetting: Uganda in the 1970s


  • Amin kills Kay, who is pregnant with Nicholas baby. Nicholas realises what Amin is doing to the people and tries to kill him, but fails. After beeing tortured the other doctor finds him, and helps him to escape. The other doctor then gets killed.

Sample AnswersSummary

  • In the early 1970s, Nicholas Garrigan, a young semi-idealistic Scottish doctor, comes to Uganda to assist in a rural hospital. Once there, he soon meets up with the new President, Idi Amin, who promises a golden age for the African nation. Garrigan hits it off immediately with the rabid Scotland fan, who soon offers him a senior position in the national health department and becomes one of Amin's closest advisers. However as the years pass, Garrigan cannot help but notice Amin's increasingly erratic behavior that grows beyond a legitimate fear of assassination into a murderous insanity that is driving Uganda into bloody ruin. Realizing his dire situation with the lunatic leader unwilling to let him go home, Garrigan must make some crucial decisions that could mean his death if the despot finds out.
