It was 1988, fighting had just gotten even worse in Lebanon. Dad was in a seige near Beirut. Everyone who survived was able to escape, except Dad, who had been taken as a POW. He was held captive and tortured for a month. The only soldier you need to know about was Abdel, who tortured him not over political gain (though that was definitely a perk) but instead to act out his repressed BDSM kink.
One day, Dad stole a gun from one of the soldiers and broke out, killing any soldiers he could find. 27 people died in the rampage. However, Abdel wasn't fucking around. He chased Dad with a katana. He was an expert in the art of the blade, trained by the best Japanese artists his salary could buy. Dad managed to escape the base and snuck on a fighter plane. He killed the soldiers inside and stole it, planning on moving to Argentina to lay low.
However, he forgot to check the cargo area. He managed to escape just before a bomb was detonated and landed on Tristan da Cunha. He stayed there for a few weeks before he ran into Abdel again. He had hidden on the plane and snuck out before detonating the bomb and landed on St. Helena. He went to Tristan to find Dad. However, he lost his sword when he got there. Shortly after, a ship leaving for South Africa picked them up to take them to the airport at Cape Town, just as long as they killed black people when they got there. They agreed with no intention to do such.
Halfway through the ride, Abdel remembered he needed to kill Dad, so he pushed him off. Dad fought the waves for three hours before a boat came by. The boat was piloted by Abdel's brother, Mahmoud. Three months later, they find out that Abdel had taken Dad's girlfriend to America and had been fucking her. Two weeks later, they got to New York City. Dad found Abdel and was about to kill him when they hear the police. Mahmoud manipulated them into going to NYC to kill them. The two ran away, realizing they'd have to work together. They stole a plane and tried to get back to the Middle East.
However, Abdel got diarrhea. He clogged the shitty toilet, which set off a chain reaction which crashed the plane in a Spanish forest. They found a car to steal that could get them back home, but Dad wasn't sure about its performance. Abdel responded by performing unspeakable acts on the car. After nearly getting caught, the two stopped in Madrid for the night. Dad got the idea to enter a game show and use the money to buy a plane ticket.
Abdel got to be a contestant and almost won until he recognized the host, Mahmoud. The two escape the trap but were cornered in an alley and surrendered. They went on trial for illegally crossing borders. Dad was proven guilty and sent to jail, but Abdel saved him. The two fled the scene and found a naval vessel. They got back home and parted ways. Dad made up with his girlfriend and they eventually got married. Abdel got life in prison, though he was later broken out by freedom fighters, and hasn't been heard from much since.
