Storyline

Barry Al-Fayed has been living in the United States for twenty years, during which time he got married to Molly Olson, and had two children (Sammy and Emma), with both Molly and he working as physicians, Barry as a pediatrician, in Pasadena. This life belies the fact that at age sixteen, he, under his given name Bassam, escaped his family life in the middle eastern country of Abbudin, where the Al-Fayeds have been the dictatorial rulers for generations, often of violent and repressive regimes which he could not morally tolerate. He has not been back to Abbudin since. On the urging of his mother, Barry decides to go back to Abbudin with Molly and family in tow. He may find that leaving Abbudin this second time around is more difficult as he gets ensconced in the troubles the Al-Fayeds are facing in general in continuing to rule the country as a repressive dictatorship. The longer Barry stays, the more it in turn affects the only life of democratic freedom Molly, Sammy and Emma have ... Written by Huggo

Ashraf Barhom - WOW
18 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great premise for a series...the interaction of cultures seen through their humanity and frailties. The cast is variable, except for Ashraf Barhom, playing Jamal, who just blows me away with his fierce energy. Every moment he is on he completely dominates the drama. Everyone looks pale beside him -- his energy seems to come like a fire from within and burns up the screen. I think this is a new star... I'll be watching to see him in more! FX really does an amazing job bringing us really interesting series instead of the usual pulp on network TV. Just when you think you've seen it all, they come up with something new. Most of us have no idea what life really looks like in Middle Eastern countries. This gives us a cool story and lets us peek into another world. And GO BARHOM!
