Vaneh Assadourian and Gail Shalan perform this intimate story of a woman in her thirties. Yara, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, has it all--a husband, two daughters, a job at a local university--but she still feels burned out. Through every disappointment, Yara tells herself to be grateful. Her marriage might have been arranged, but at least her husband isn't violent like her father. After an incident at her job, she starts seeing a therapist, begins to confront the trauma of her past, and works towards a better future. Assadourian skillfully narrates Yara's emotional arc, reflecting the character's depth. Shalan performs Yara's journal entries, giving listeners more insight into Yara's memories.
