"Elizza BenTaleb is a student in her final semester of obtaining her MBA with ambitions to open up a smart energy business that aims to help people in Libya get access to clean energy. Elizza is trying to navigate the often conflicting demands of faith, career, and relationships while simultaneously trying to mother her four sisters in the absence of what she considers proper parenting. The angel of the family, Jana, suffers from undiagnosed depression. Maryam adheres to uber-conservative Islamic principles and never misses an opportunity to correct her family members. Leedya is on the opposite end of the shariah spectrum and is an Insta-famous Hijabi who does hijab tutorials for her tens of thousands of followers. At the beginning of Elizza's last semester, a successful Libyan businessman, Firas Tarseen, is hired for a semester to give lectures at the university. Elizza has some less than genial encounters with the fellow, but can't seem to avoid bumping into him everywhere. Can they overlook their first impressions of each other to realize that they may have more in common than they know?"--
