Sisters Rose and Gameela could not have been more different. Rose, an Egyptologist, immigrated to New York City, where she works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gameela, a devout Muslim, stayed in Cairo. During the aftermath of Egypt's revolution, Gameela is killed in a suicide bombing. When Rose returns to Egypt after the bombing, she sifts through Gameela's things, desperate to understand who she truly was. Soon, Rose realizes that Gameela has left many questions unanswered. Rich in depth and feeling, a brilliant portrait of two Muslim women in the twenty-first century.
