We are about to take off on a grand adventure together where we will learn from the mistakes of others. We will begin our journey in Afghanistan where we learn about the trials and tribulations of growing up Pashtun. Then, we will travel to Scotland where ambition leads to insanity. Afterwards, on to a familiar continent in a foreign time where we will learn about the American dream. There are many places to go, and many people to meet as we experience some of humanity's strongest emotions: guilt, regret, and betrayal.
