The writers are working through complicated relationships-including complicated relationships with themselves.
In Italy, a woman falls under the sway of a charismatic painter. His motives are more difficult to discern than the images in his oils and acrylics. When she decides to explore this relationship built on earnestness and uncertainty she finds earnestness and uncertainty.
In Syria, a young woman and her two younger siblings huddle together seeking safety via escape from the daily bombings in Damascus. For her, ISIS isn’t an international news story. ISIS is local news. When bombs are falling all around you, the fallout has a way of changing your relationship with the people all around you.
In France, a woman is excited to see a Black Madonna-but race and religion can blind.
