Magda Akbahla is a 19 year-old, sheltered only daughter of a very wealthy and traditionally orthodox Middle Eastern family. Magda struggles with pleasing her parents by agreeing to the marriage they prearranged for her while living in the Western world where she aspires to graduate college, become an attorney and be more independent than everyone expects. To add to the weight of her circumstance, Magda hasn’t shared with anyone that she questions her sexual orientation and is confused by inappropriate contact with an older female relative that began when she was just a child. Eventually, Magda turned to alcohol to deal with her secrets, until her family ambushed her with an intervention that ended with her being taken to rehab against her will.
