“My life now has meaning, I give my heart to love, and this is how I function better...”

In our season finale, we join a small community of Afghan women in Beirut who gather for a feast to break the fast. At different points in the tides of conversation, three of the women turn inward and reflect upon their lives.

Nasrin Azizy thinks about her mother and the life she’s lived. Fatema Rezaie reflects upon her struggles and how Lebanon has become her home. And Roya Maliky finds the meaning of her life.

This episode is hosted by Roya Maliky.
