A lifetime ago, Fakhreddin had been a naive young lawyer, seeking to fight corruption from his modest quarter of Cairo. Then, a botched attempt on his life forced him to flee the country, propelling him on a wild journey that would take him to Afghanistan’s jihadi training camps.

Just as crushed idealism morphs into a vicious cycle of violence and revenge, so Fakhreddin is transformed into a trained killer.

But, at the very core of Fakhreddin’s bold, militant exploits are his broken dreams and his family, most of all his son Omar—who he left behind.
