Qusay organises the withdrawal of large sums of cash from Iraq's central bank and the family part as Saddam is overthrown from power. As American troops begin a widescale hunt for the former Iraqi president, his family and henchmen, Saddam flees to rural Tikrit where he is forced to go to ground. He phones Samira from a call box and tells her to leave for Lebanon, but that he will not join her. With a few loyal bodyguards Saddam hides out in a rustic building. He makes friends with Ahmed, a lively local boy who initially does not know who he is. He insists that the Iraqi people should continue to resist, and broadcasts his messages from his hideout. His first wife Sajida and family anxiously watch events unfold on television.
