Questions of identity and her own hybridism arise-where does she belong? Dalal begins teaching at a public school, but when she becomes involved in the problems of a gifted student, her colleagues label her an outsider- her family members do not support her. Boundaries are challenged and traditions are explored as Dalal undergoes many challenges that threaten to push her to her absolute limits. In Kuwait, and in any other Arabian society, family bonds are sacred. Family is consulted when making any life changing decision. And sometimes privacy just doesnt exist. People turn solely to family when theyre in trouble or face danger ... but what if its family that youre trying to run away from?
