The son of Labasaur, and another antagonist of the story, he will stop at nothing to maintain his control of the Babylonian throne through the priesthood of Marduk. His efforts to undermine Babylon’s future under the Medean and Persian conquest far exceed the wickedness his father was prone to in the time of Nebuchadnezzar.

Belutusu attempts to start an uprising by having all the food store-houses burned to the ground during the conquest of Babylon by the Medes and Persians. Belutusu and his cohorts plot to spread the rumor that Darius the Mede will commandeer the goods from and maim any merchant bringing goods for trade to Babylon.

This creates a standstill of goods and food imported into the city, and instigates a potential insurrection. Despite Belutusu’s wickedness, however, his conspiracy is uncovered by Adda in the end, and because there is no honor among thieves, the co-conspirators point fingers at each other. The result is they are all sentenced to death in the lion’s den, the very method by which Daniel was to die through their scheming ways.

“The Exile” is a three-part film project based on the book of Daniel and the events surrounding remnant Israel’s seventy year exile in Babylon. Following in the tradition of Ben-Hur, this biblical epic fuses together the sub-genres to which “The Passion of the Christ” and “Gladiator” belong. The story carries the gospel message from a unique perspective, the events within it occurring hundreds of years before Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death and resurrection.
