NARRATIVE SHORT | 17 MIN | unknown


Sirah is a young Muslim girl desperate for friends, but her traditional garb and unfamiliar religion make her an outcast at her private school. Amy wants to be Sirah's friend, but she doesn't have quite enough courage to befriend the least popular girl in school, especially when her friend Caitlin is always challenging Sirah's way of life. Ultimately, Caitlin makes a request that forces Sirah to choose between the world she wants to be a part of and the world she grew up in.
