In Arlington, sweet Sara Jane waits for her soldier husband to return from war—where he may have committed a stunning atrocity. After a few too many bourbons, she begins to pose some dangerous questions, as well as reveal some nasty secrets. Arlington tracks one woman’s examination of her conflicted psyche and the slow dawning of a new political consciousness.
In Borrowed Dust, George Richardson has just returned from a trip to his childhood home to claim and bury the body of his younger brother. As he recalls the experience and grapples with the sudden loss, the emotional landmines, the blood ties, and the secrets revealed, we bear witness to his story and his effort to find sense and acceptance.
In Farhad or The Secret of Being, an Afghan girl who was raised as a boy reaches puberty and faces the abrupt changes of womanhood when she is plunged into an arranged marriage. She struggles to adapt to the difficult world women confront in this part of the world as she tries to find ways to surpass limitations and the bondage of her reality.
