"Zaki al-Arsuzi School is a girls-only secondary school. Jaramana School is a boys-only middle school. Focusing on two new students-Du'aa, a teenage Muslim girl who has transferred to secular Zaki al-Arsuzi from a Sharia school, and Yusif, a teenage Christian boy from Iraq who is attending Jaramana as a war refugee-this program maps their experiences against the broader picture of Syrian society, modern Islam, and political instability in the Middle East. Topics include the observance of Ramadan and the Festival of the Cross, wearing the hijab, Baathism, the evolving role of women, the trauma of life in a war zone, Syria's growing entrepreneurialism, and matters of school governance. Produced by the Open University. (Portions in Syrian with English subtitles, 59 minutes)."
