Iraqi. The same actors plays KARIMA in the first act and LAYAL in
the second act. KARIMA is a decision maker, the matriarch figure, doesn't shy away from conflict, very
protective of her children and the home. LAYAL is thrust into motherhood at an early age when she
must raise her younger siblings, and she quickly adapts to this challenge. Both roles are loving, dutiful,
creative, dreamers. Arabic literacy a plus, but not required.
