Meet some of the most influential dictators of the 20th century through the eyes of their children.

Imagine youself as a child of a dictator with absolute power. Would history be able to change your mind about your father? Would facts effect your emotions? This 4-part-series brings a rarely seen personal perspective on history and offers a deeper understanding of the most feared leaders in the world while focussing on their children and relatives, namely Lucia Pinochet in Chile, Jaffar Amin in Uganda, Bettina Goering in Germany and Fidel Castro's daughter in Miami.
