Storyline

Illegal and trapped in a polygamous marriage, Laila, an immigrant from Morocco struggles to raise her son in the foreign American world. Her language gap and cultural isolation leaves her and the other two wives contained within their household duties, unable to respond to a message from her son's school teacher. Consumed with providing for his family, the husband becomes stressed from business leaving tension lingering in the air. After discovering bruises on her son and understanding the teacher's message about his violence, Laila is faced with a difficult choice to sacrifice herself for her son's future. Laila's courage and autonomous drive is what compel her to reach out for help, even when if it means having to say goodbye to her son. Written by Anonymous
