Tyrant is about a Middle-Eastern man named Bassam “Barry” Al-Fayeed who is born to a tyrannical ruler in the fictional city of Abbudin. He escapes his father and older brother and runs away from his heritage, ending up in the United States as a pediatrician, marrying an American woman and having children. Feeling as though his past is behind him, Barry is called back to Abbudin for his nephew’s wedding, when soon after, his father suddenly dies and Barry is forced into an intense political battle over his successor. Barry must now guide his equally tyrannical older brother to a more peaceful rule in order to avoid a horrific war.
