Introspective and quieter than most children their age, Sadaf left the Middle East in early childhood due to conflict.  Their subsequent displacement has caused anxiety, vivid nightmares about their past experiences in the war, and a clinginess to their mother for comfort and security. Sensitive to the moods and emotions of those around them.

**A familiarity with a Middle Eastern language, such as Arabic, is a plus not a must.

FATIMA-She is in her early to mid 30s. Middle Eastern and/or North African. A refugee from the Middle East, she has resettled in a new country under challenging circumstances. A widow, having lost her husband to the conflict in the Middle East, her life revolves around her child and helping her child adjust to a new life amidst the lingering trauma of their past.  Creating a stable and safe environment is her number one priority.  Protective, nurturing, warm, maternal,  deeply empathetic and strong. She carries sorrow from her past but remains determined and hopeful for a better future for her child. Soft spoken yet firm when needed, she has a quiet strength that is evident in handling adversity. Some of her lines are in Arabic to maintain authenticity. Must be comfortable wearing a hijab for some scenes.

**A familiarity with a Middle Eastern language, such as Arabic, AND/OR a familiarity with a is a major plus.
