BASSAM "BARRY" AL-FAYEED
An American pediatrician, Barry lives in Pasadena, California with his wife Molly and their two children, high schoolers Emma and Sammy. Unbeknownst to anyone but his immediate family, Barry is the son of a despised Middle Eastern dictator. After a self-imposed 20-year exile in America, Barry finally agrees to return to his homeland of Abbudin for his nephew’s wedding. Once there, he finds the situation both politically and personally volatile, with opposition to his tyrannical father and brother worsening. Determined to make it through the wedding and then head back to the sanity and safety of the States, Barry is unprepared for his father’s desire for him to step in and lead the family and the nation.
