The true story of a mother s courageous flight to freedom in Australia. 'Don't waste time, take your children and get out. Do not come back. Promise me, Guzin. Do not come back.' Those were the last words Ra'ad Said ever spoke to his wife, Guzin. Four days later he was dead, murdered by Saddam Hussein's brutal regime. Ra'ad was an Iraqi diplomat and the love of Guzin's life. Their world had once been the international diplomatic circuit. But Saddam Hussein's grip on power in Iraq had tightened and Guzin and Ra'ad's world began to change.

Ra'ad became more and more depressed and incommunicative, until one day two of Saddam's henchmen dragged him from a car and dumped him outside his home. As he lay dying it was then he made Guzin promise she would take their children out of Iraq, never to return.
