Hodan Ugaas
Halima – Is a 27 year old humanitarian by day and a nurse by night. She comes from many responsibilities but the most significant to her is her mother who never left somalia.

It is not until she goes back that she learns everything she has been told was a lie.

Thomas Raddatz
Bruce – is a 26 year old law major and a friend of the somali community. Born in north carolina to a prestigious family but raised in the inner city.
