Staff Reviews

After the Syrian Revolution destroyed many lives, including Salama's parents and brother, Salama, a pharmacy student, finds herself serving as a doctor at the hospital. Despite her fears, Salama does her best to help those who are brought in before making her way home to her pregnant sister-in-law, Layla. Layla is eager to flee the country, but Salama is stuck between feeling compelled to stay behind to help those who are hurt and wanting to leave in hopes of a better life. Her stress is manifested in an imaginary spirit who tells her what to do, and any decision is further complicated when she meets an attractive young man. This is a compelling story of what the ongoing trauma of war does to individuals and their communities.
