    • Synopsis
    • Jasira, daughter of a Lebanese-American father and an American mother, comes of age in the early 90's during the first Gulf War. When Jasira unwittingly enters into a dangerous flirtation with her mother's boyfriend, her mother insists that Jasira moves to the house of her father. Instead of being a solution, Jasira's move is a catalyst for crisis. Her interactions with the neighbors, a pregnant newlywed and an army reservist yield startling, yet heart-wrenching and ultimately redeeming consequences. Finally, Jasira realizes that she, and only she, must be in control of her body and life.
