Tyrant is an edgy, exciting new series centered in the fictional, modern Middle Eastern country of Baladi. The ruling family has held control over the country using an iron fist to control it's citizens. Bassam "Barry" Al Fayeed is the younger son of Baladi's dictator who fled the country at an early age to make a life for himself free of the family obligations and violence of his home country. After a self-imposed exile of almost twenty years Barry has reluctantly agreed to return to Baladi with his American family to attend his nephew's wedding.

Upon his return Barry is confronted with many of the moral and social issues that drove him to leave his home country originally. The opulent and lavish life style of the ruling family is in direct conflict with the common population who are living in generally squalid conditions.

Barry's decision to return to the United States is short lived when his father suffers a stroke and dies. He is drawn back into a culture and environment he desperately wanted to leave but now must deal with.
