Storyline

May 1995. Iraq is crippled by UN sanctions for refusing to comply with weapons inspections. When inspectors are finally admitted, a cat-and-mouse game begins. In charge of the subterfuge is Qusay, Saddam's new successor--a move that infuriates Hussein Kamal. As a Day of Days celebration arrives to mark the anniversary of the victory over Iran, a worried Hussein and his brother cross the border to take diplomatic asylum in Jordan. There, Hussein meets with UN and CIA officials, offering up information on the whereabouts of Iraq's hidden weapons while making claims to Iraqi's leadership. Meanwhile, an infuriated Saddam plots a plan for their return--and his revenge. Written by Anonymous
