Wafa returns to continue sharing her life story that begins in Morocco, with her mother, as she is married off at 13 to a man she does not know or love.
 
The true tale continues, weaving through varied countries, religions, economic states, romantic trysts, lusts, and loves. It transports readers back in time to a Middle Eastern society far removed from modern American sensibilities.
 
In today's hour-long episode, we will raise the issue of Wafa's identity as an Arab-American Muslim who, particularly found it difficult to share particularly following 9/11 and the Iraq War. As diffiult as it is, Wafa considers her speaking about it as a sort of "coming out" process.
