  • Snapshots
    Miral and Mustafa have just gotten back from a routine trip to the mosque. But something out of the ordinary has happened, leading them each to call their best friends Nadia and Kamal. Things start to unravel as the individual snapshots of their lives come into focus, testing the limits of faith, sexuality, commitment, histories, and their basic beliefs about who they are.

    Khadija’s mother has just passed away. She needs to pack up the house before the movers arrive, but has little time left for the treasured family desk. Will the truths that it speaks be more than she can handle? Or will her poems give her the last word?
