The three principal groups in Iraq—Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds—are profiled in this examination of the divisive forces that are tearing the country apart.

A fatherless 11-year-old is apprenticed to the domineering owner of a Baghdad garage; Sadr followers in two Shiite cities rally for regional elections while enforcing Islamic law at the point of a gun; a family of Kurdish farmers welcomes the US presence, which has allowed them a measure of freedom previously denied.
